Amethyst – Stone of Divine Protection

Amethyst is probably the most valuable member of the quartz family. It has a color range from pale to deep purple, and comes in varying degrees of opacity, from very light and almost translucent to dark, almost black. However, the dark kind will show it’s purple if held up to the light.

Amethyst is the stone of spiritual protection by generating a bubble of light around one’s aura. It can bring awareness and clarity of the root causes of self-destructive patterns and help one to take responsibility to clear them. Likewise, addictions and bad habits can be released with the assistance of Amethyst.

It stimulates the crown center and can be helpful during meditation, and assist one to enter higher states of consciousness. It can open the Third Eye so that one can develop intuition and psychic abilities. This is achieved through an enhanced connection to Divine energies.

It is not surprising that the color purple is associated with protection and intuition. It is also the color of royalty, spirituality, and success.
