Amethyst facilitates meditation. It opens and clears the third-eye and crown chakras, which accelerates the development of intuition and psychic abilities. It helps to identify root causes behind behaviors and emotional patterns and encourages us to take responsibility for our reality.
Amethyst History and Uses: Amethyst derives its name from ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated” and relates to an ancient Greek legend. Dionysus, the god of celebration and revelry, declared he would have revenge on mortals for not drinking his wine. He decided to have the beautiful maiden named Amethyst eaten by his tigers while she was on her way to worship at the temple of Artemis, the virgin huntress. Amethyst called to Artemis for protection and the goddess turned her into a pure white quartz statue to save her from the tigers. When Dionysus saw how beautiful she was he was filled with remorse for his ruthlessness and began to weep into his cup of wine which then spilled over the quartz statue turning it a beautiful shade of purple. Amethyst can range in color from lilac pink to purple-red to deep purple. In ancient times the Romans inlaid their cups with Amethyst believing it would protect them from drunkenness. Catholic bishops wore Amethyst rings to prevent mystical intoxication and kissing the ring was thought to keep people focused on spiritual thoughts. It was used for protection from black magic and treachery and to ensure victory in war and in hunting.
