Amethyst For Protection
I was talking to SilverInfinity about protective crystals and I thought I’d post the info here. Amethyst quartz makes an excellent crystal to carry for protection. DreamTime also makes Amethyst jewelry.

Alternate Names & Name Spellings: "Sobriety Stone"

Rock Lore & Tidbits: Crushed amethyst was used by the Ancient Romans as a way to ward off intoxication. They word amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethystus" meaning not drunken, or intoxicated. And there is a Greek legend of how amethyst got its purple color. Once, Dionysis (diety of wine and mischief) was so annoyed by Artemis (a virgin huntress and Lunar deity) that he set his sacred tigers upon a maiden attending her shrine. To preserve the maiden, whose name was Amethyst, Artemis petrified her in sparkling quartz. Lamenting this virgin's demise, Dionysis poured a the contents of his cup over the statue, which immediately became infused with the purple of the grape.

Amethyst is purple quartz, and is a meditative and calming stone. It works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. Amethyst is also beneficial when dealing with legal problems and money issues, which can lead to prosperity and abundance.

Emotionally, amethyst can help heal personal losses and grief. Amethyst has a gently sedative energy that promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. It also brings emotional stability and inner strength, and can enhance flexibility and cooperation. Amethyst can help get rid of addictions (alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc.) and compulsive behaviors of all kinds.

In the psychic and spiritual realms, amethyst is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is known to open one's channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work, and protects one from thieves, and protects travelers.

Physically, amethyst is beneficial for reducing withdrawal symptoms of all kinds, blood sugar imbalances, depression, general healing, left brain imbalances, headaches, arthritis, insomnia, nightmares, other sleep disorders, ADD/ADHD, generalized anxiety, mania, ear aches, pain relief, circulatory system issues, endocrine system problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune system deficiencies, and general healing.

do you use this stone or any others...and if so what do you find of it/what are your experiences with it.

I prefer onyx, it's my stone, but I like amethyst too.
The problem is that onyx collects a lot of energy, especially negative energy, so I can't wear it all the time.
Amethyst gives me psyhical stability and balance, I feel safe when I wear it. Thanks God, I haven't had any problems with health so far, except problems with tonsils,but I used rock crystal and it helped me.
Thanks for the info, Richard, I have to try some of the techniques with amethyst. :)

I have an amethyst cluster on my nightstand and I find that it is very calming. Since placing it there I have not only experienced exceptional peace, tranquility and serenity but I have been able to stop smoking as well.

That's interesting that the amethyst helped you stop smoking. I wouldn't have thought it would work for that.

I wonder if growing a giant violet sugar crystal would do anything

Amethyst is my natural stone, and I have just found a perfect one! :D It literally drew me into the store. Amethyst also gives emotional stability, and helps focus the mind - therefore giving manifestation to thought. If you can focus your mind and thought through amethyst, you can materialize almost anything. Also it is good for reflecting upon yourself, your thoughts and actions, it helps separate and clean them. It can also enable you to see different dimensions and realities. It likes to be put into salt water and left under a plant of the same color, I forgot how to say it in English, on the night of the full moon. Treat it as if you would a friend, connect with it and surround the two of you with love. The results are amazing. :)

Amethyst :)

According to Melody’s fine book Love is in the Earth, amethyst “can be used to protect against psychic attacks; the energy of the attack being transmitted to the universe after its transformation into a positive, loving energy.

Amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.
