This gorgeous variety of quartz comes in shades of pale purple to a deep violet colour. Amethyst is believed to be a very powerful protective stone, and its uses seem nearly endless. Sometimes referred to as the 'Stone of Sobriety' it was thought to help a person recover from physical addictions as well as addictive relationships. It also magnifies positive vibes while cleansing the body of negative energy. Amethyst jewelry is great for naturally relieving stress once placed against the skin. Place amethyst in your home or office to cleanse the area of negative energies, and in the bedroom to protect against nightmares and insomnia.
