Stone Saturday::Amethyst

Amethyst is probably one of the most popular stones that is used in crystal healing.  Its gorgeous purple color and fun shape make it a gorgeous addition to your altar or work space, and it is relatively easy to find in shops. 

Amethyst is prized for its creative,spiritual, and healing properties.  The stone is associated with our third-eye and crown chakra, which means amethyst is commonly used to help us connect to our intuition and higher self. Amethyst can help to enhance your meditation practice and can be placed on your work desk to inspire creativity, focus, and clarity.  If you are an artist, you might want to keep an amethyst stone with you while you work.  Another third-eye property of amethyst is that it inspires a calm mind and can help to soothe anxiety.  Place an amethyst under your pillow to help combat insomnia.  Use amethyst if you are trying to break a bad habit.  The word amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethusthos" which translates to "not drunk."  Amethyst has been used by people since the ancient Egyptians, who believed it could protect travelers.  You can use amethyst to protect you too:  it provides a purifying and clearing energy to those who wear it. 

So tell me: Do you have an amethyst in your stone collection?  How do you use it?
