What is Amethyst?

Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Koine Greek αμέθυστος amethystos from α- a-, “not” and μεθύσκω (Ancient Greek) methysko / μεθώ metho (Modern Greek), “intoxicate”, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. Amethyst is a powerhouse stone. It vibrates at a high frequency, creating a bubble of spiritual protection against negative energy. It awakens higher consciousness, assists in wise decision-making free of emotional confusion, and facilitates meditation and intuition.

Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz crystal. Its purple color ranges from light lavender to dark violet, and it is usually translucent. Like all quartz, purple amethyst gemstones are a commonly used crystal in metaphysical work. Amethyst is found in many parts of the world. Only a few countries provide darker, high-quality gemstones. Other common varieties of quartz include rose quartz and carnelian.
Many stones have fake varieties, but there’s no real point to making synthetic amethyst because natural amethyst is common and inexpensive. The only thing you need to look out for is glass that is only purple colored, but fancily named amethyst.

Amethyst is a semiprecious stone that is often used in jewelry and is the traditional birthstone for February. It also has meaning to the astrological signs Pisces, Aries, Aquarius, and Sagittarius. It is good for Engagement Rings too. Read more about this stone/crystal
