Amethyst is part of the Quartz family, it is named after the Greek Ametusthos meaning not intoxicated, one of the reason the Ancient Greeks believe it would stop drunkeness or hang overs!
We have our Purple Amethysts, and more recently, our Pink Amethysts, each with their own Healing Properties:
Purple Amethyst is a strong healing stone as well as amplifying your intentions, it protects us from negative energies. Removing and transmuting any negativity into positivity, cleansing our aura and sparking a new lease of energy.
It works with our Third Eye and Crown Chakra, opening up intuition and deeper manifestation, giving clarity allowing us to reach higher astral planes and speaking to our spirit guides.
Pink Amethyst works instead with our heart chakra, being a softer, more feminine energy. It looks at the healing of the heart, guiding us through any uncertainty with relationships and helping us to follow our intuition.
Pink Amethyst can bring calmness in stressful situations, allowing us to see what is needed and not be clouded by the small details which increase anxiety and stress. It can offer you comfort during any form of sadness or grief, as you’ll have a heightened sense of truth no matter what adversity you are facing.
Pink amethyst may be able to treat physical ailments associated with intense stress, such as gut disorder, high blood pressure, and an over-sensitive nervous system.
