In the spiritual world, Amethyst provided a connection to the Divine. To the Hebrews, it was Ahlamah, the ninth stone in the breastplate of the High Priest, engraved with the tribe of Dan, as well as the twelfth foundation stone for the New Jerusalem. To the Egyptians, it was Hemag, listed in the Book of the Dead to be carved into heart-shaped amulets for burial. In Eastern cultures, it was listed in descriptions of sacred “gem-cities,” “trees of life,” and used in temple offerings for worship, and to align planetary and astrological influences. It was popular in rosaries and prayer beads, credited with creating an atmosphere of pious calm, imbuing a sense of mental peace and quietude


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. 



You can wear your crystal as jewelry or carry in your pocket or on your person to get the benefits of the crystal. You can also place them around your home or workplace to clean the energy around you.



In a quiet place hold your crystal up to your third eye chakra (your brow) and state your intentions or your wishes. You can also hold it in your hand and imagine a white light generating from the crystal up your arm and taking over your whole body which results in you being lighted up by the crystal.



There are many ways to charge your crystal. A few ways are to place it on a reiki grid, expose it to sunlight and moonlight for 24 hours, point other crystals at the crystal you want to use, surround your crystal with plants or bury it in soil, direct your thoughts into it, run distilled or spring water over it, using sound by putting it in a Tibetan bowl and tap the bowl and hum over it, using incense, sage.
