What is Amethyst and What Does it Represent?
Amethyst is a type of Quartz with a shade of violet. The name “amethystos” means not intoxicated, derived from the standard dialect - Koine Greek ; about the Crystal being known to prevent drunkenness and overindulgence back in the day. Amethyst is called to be one of the most powerful and protective stones out there. It holds a stunning appearance paired with its known ability to stimulate the mind and emotions. Alongside, this violet beauty has many positive meanings. Amethyst may help bring out the purest aspirations of a person, is said to offer protection, and encourages love and connection amongst people. Not to mention, it could work as a great stress reliever.
The History of Amethyst
Amethyst jewelry is gorgeous today, and its findings have been dated as far back as 2000 BC. In the early days, the violet Crystal was a famous and precious stone known for its powerful abilities. As mentioned, since Amethyst was known to prevent drunkenness, the Greeks wore Amethyst and made drinking vessels out of it. Quite a luxurious one would say! On the other hand, the Ancient Egyptians used this Crystal to represent the zodiac sign of the Goat. In addition to the early times, Amethyst was placed in Churches and worn on Bishops' rings. The purple colour was used to symbolize Christ.

Other characteristics that Amethyst could help with are to help calm the mind, improve insomnia and provide positive dreams. On top of that, it could help boost hormone production and metabolism, strengthen the immune system, and also may help reduce tension in the body or soothe headaches.
Amethyst and the Chakras
Medicine practitioners may use Amethysts along with other Crystals for healing purposes by placing them on the body. Amethyst can pair well with the seventh chakra, known as the crown chakra, where the stone would be placed - the top of one's head. The crown chakra may also be called the bliss chakra as it aligns one's mind with wisdom. As one embarks on their journey of opening up the crown chakra through spiritual practices, it could help connect to their higher self. Amethyst can work to overcome barriers that make a person feel upset, depressed, or socially or emotionally challenged.
