A beautiful type of crystal, it’s translucent purple from a light violet, to grape, and deep Smokey purple. It’s a common stone which is easily obtained. There are other varieties of amethyst but we won’t get into those today. Being a high vibration stone that is also very protective, it guards against psychic attack as well as negative energies of all types.
Amethyst is a great stone to help balance energy, clear, cleanse energy, and reduce stress. It is a positive energy stone that promotes love and selflessness. Amethyst is great to meditate with by increasing spiritual awareness, tranquility and sensing love of the divine. It corresponds to the crown chakras and helps with the 3rd eye intuition, out of body experiences, and inner vision. You can use it to cleanse auras as well.
Also known for healing properties, it promotes healing throughout the body and brings harmony while repelling negative energy. So, if you’re just starting out in crystals, I highly recommend this stone for its versatility and for its properties.
