Pretty Purple Stone

Light Amethyst from Brazil
Being one of the most common crystals there is, Amethyst is a very powerful and protective stone.  It aids in guarding against psychic attack, turning that energy into love! Amethyst has long been used as a calming stone; it’s great to keep near one’s bed for a restful night’s sleep. It is also a great overall healer. Back in the day, it was thought to protect one against drunkenness.  People would wear it and go to town!  When mediating with it, Amethyst helps calm and focus the mind. Amethyst is great for balancing the ups and downs of life. Keep a tumbled stone in your pocket if you have a stressful job or keep some in the main location of the home to aid in tranquility. Amethyst also aids in increasing the effect of other crystals, so it is a great stone for crystal grids.
Dark Amethyst from Uruguay
When I use amethyst, I noticed that depending on the coloring, it has different effects for me. The lighter Amethyst is more nurturing, while the darker is more protective. I wear an Amethyst bracelet to aid in keeping my emotions in check and do notice a difference when I do not have it on. I love to meditate with Amethyst and use it in my crystal grids for its calming and amplifying effect.
