Spiritual Meaning of Gems ~ Amethyst


Amethyst is a variety of Quartz found in many locations around the world, and forms as transparent, terminated crystals of all sizes in geodes, clusters and long single terminations. The presence of manganese in clear Quartz produces Amethyst, while additional amounts of iron vary the purple coloration. Amethyst ranges in hue from pale red-violet to deep violet, and may be transparent or opaque.

Amethyst is a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, enhancing one's ability to think deeply and develop intuitive ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding.

Amethyst's high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments, and creates a protective shield of Light around the body, allowing one to remain clear and centered while opening to spiritual direction.

Amethyst’s ability to expand the higher mind also enhances one’s creativity and passion. It strengthens the imagination and intuition, and refines the thinking processes. It helps in the assimilation of new ideas, putting thought into action, and bringing projects to fruition. This beautiful purple stone can be a talisman of focus and success.

Often viewed as a stone of peace, Amethyst’s calming presence is thought to produce soothing dreams. This clarity and peacefulness also extends to the waking mind. It is said to improve intellectual and cerebral thought and can help mitigate impatience. It can help you think both soberly and critically about the situations you face, which will lead you to far greater success in handling them.

Emotionally, Amethyst can be used to help heal personal losses and grief, bringing one gently past painful experience. It also is said to bring stability and inner strength. This stability and strength not only helps one hold firm in one’s life, but it can enhance flexibility and cooperation.

Amethyst has long been said to promote sobriety – both in the literal sense of preventing drunkenness, and in the metaphorical sense of developing an ability to think more clearly and not be clouded with emotion. This is a wonderful crystal to use if you find yourself in a situation where you are unsure how to take action. Amethyst will help you listen to deeper issues behind the surface and formulate solutions in a highly practical, helpful way.
