If you know me, you know that I am true lover of gemstones both for their sparkly colors and their interesting stories.  Amethyst is a stone that has always been close to my heart as it is the birth stone for those born in February (like me!!!)  It comes in a variety of shades of violets, purples and pinks and can be found in many items from jewelry, to home decor, to healing instruments.  I particularly love wearing rough cut geode versions of this stone where the colors and textures are striking and beautiful.  Amethyst has a very intriguing place in history and has been believe for ages to have a variety of metaphysical properties that we could all use in our daily lives.  Here, I’ll share with you some interesting bits about this beautiful gemstone and as well a few of my favorite jewelry pieces for this spring which feature amethyst.

Purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. It is a semi-precious stone in today’s classifications, but to the ancients it was a “Gem of Fire,” a Precious Stone worth, at times in history, as much as a Diamond. It has always been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune, their water-god, and is the traditional birthstone of that month. It is the stone of St. Valentine and faithful love, and signifies ecclesiastical dignity as the Bishop’s Stone. It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity and spirituality, yet bears the logic of temperance and sobriety. [Fernie, 170-171][Mella, 73][Eason, 212] Quoted from: https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/amethyst

In today’s world, Amethyst is still a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. Its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments, and creates a protective shield of Light around the body, allowing one to remain clear and centered while opening to spiritual direction. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding, and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one. [Melody, 109][Simmons, 28][Ahsian, 29][Raphaell, 80]Quoted from: https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/amethyst

Amethyst’s ability to expand the higher mind also enhances one’s creativity and passion. It strengthens the imagination and intuition, and refines the thinking processes. It helps in the assimilation of new ideas, putting thought into action, and brings projects to fruition. It is a talisman of focus and success. [Megemont, 25] Quoted from: https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/amethyst
