Meaning of Amethyst

The Stone of the Spirit   (A 1st Step Stone)

Balancing the Crown Chakra - The Color PURPLE

A green or blue green member of the Feldspar clan.

Purple Amethyst is an 7th Chakra StonePurple- The color of SPIRIT

Amethyst is a member of the crystal quartz or silica group, which are the most common minerals on our planet.

Color:   Violet  Is the color of Spirituality.  Amethyst ranges in color from light lavender to dark purple.

Size :
$4.95

Element: Water

Metaphysical:   -  Amethyst means NOT DRUNK. 

For some of us  - Amethyst is the Stone of Spirituality AND Sobriety

It is also the Stone of Transformation.  I can't think of a better stone to symbolize the First Step, Sobriety and the 12 Step Program. Transformed means that we are not as we once were.

Wear it as a reminder that you are in a 12 Step program which is a Program of Spiritual Recovery, and that you are Spiritual beings having a human experience.

Amethyst is a stone of the mind.  It helps to bring calmness and clarity where there is anxiety and confusion.   Wear Amethyst if you want to get in touch with your intuition, your feelings, or your values.  Amethyst helps one learn of all things spiritual, mystic and psychic. Especially aids sobriety; alcohol, food, sex, and other addictions. Eases compulsive/obsessive behavior (desire for food, tobacco, drugs, alcohol, etc.)  Famous ancient detoxifier (especially helps with poisons, alcohol.) 

Stress:  It is very good for overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed metal states because of it extreme calming mental effects. It is considered an extremely spiritual stone.  In the Old Testament, it is written that Aaron, the Jewish High Priest, wore the amethyst in the center of his breastplate, and it was said to induce visions and revelations. Many people sleep with an Amethyst crystal under their pillow for this reason. The Catholic bishop still wears an Amethyst ring on the second finger of his right hand.

Addictions: Amethyst comes from a Greek word, amethusos, meaning not drunk. There is a ancient myth about Bacchus turning a young maiden to stone, and in remorse, he poured wine on the statue, staining it purple and creating amethyst. Goblets of Amethyst were said to prevent the drinker from being overwhelmed by the drink’s spirit.   Today those trying to overcome addictions, especially alcohol addiction, use the healing powers of Amethyst as an aid.

Protection: Amethyst is a crystal of protection, because it repels more than it attracts.

Spirituality: Amethyst fosters healing and  selflessness, and is associated with increased nobility, spiritual awareness, meditation, balance, psychic abilities, inner peace, and positive transformation.  Some say it should be called the Stone of Transformation. Known also as "Metamorphosis".

Amethyst calms the mind and helps us to connect with our spiritual nature, while Rose Quartz soothes the heart, brings love into our life, and heals past emotional wounds.   Black Onyx protects us from negative influences, and the negative opinions of others. Clear Quartz crystal, (an energizer and amplifier ) will enhance the effects of all crystals.  Together they balance Heart, Mind, and Soul.
