Historically amethyst was classed as a precious gemstone, as revered as diamonds are today. Nowadays it is still considered a powerful healing stone, believed to encourage connection to universal life force. Bringing mental calm and relief from anger and obsessive tendencies, physical overindulgence, addictions and overspending. It is thought to bring relief from insomnia and nightmares.
Amethyst is associated with creativity, spiritual insight and intellectual reasoning. Referred to as both an artist’s stone and as worn by St. Valentine, ‘the couple’s stone’ bringing meaning to romantic, physical relationships, so encouraging soulful, enduring partnerships.
