Amethyst is known as the peace, soothing or relaxing stone. I sat today holding two pieces of Amethyst in my hands, and then I felt my whole body relax. This crystal is ideal for meditation and spiritual guidance. Amethyst increases spirituality and enhances intuition.
Amethyst is also known as the great protector. A great protector against psychic attack, especially during spiritual work. In the past it was carried whilst travelling. It was believed to protect travellers against thieves.
It was believed that if a person drank from a cup made entirely of amethyst, they would be protected from becoming drunk. Amethyst is used today to help with addictions of any sort, sleep disorders,and pain, especially headaches.
