Amethyst is a violet variant of quartz mineral, which today is classed as a semi-precious stone but these gemstones in the ancient world were classified as truly precious. In ancient Greece people believed that objects (e.g. drinking vessels, gems) made from amethyst could prevent intoxication. And farther back in time the ancient Egyptians already established a custom of wearing amethyst gemstones as amulets. Amongst knights in medieval Europe this was a common practice, too.
The translucent violet to transparant purple nature of amethyst is said to have the ability to erradicate negative thoughts and feelings. In addition due to its intense clarity the quartz mineral is believed to have a clearing effect on a cloudy mind/soul. This amulet also is blessed with inherent healing properties for focus and cleansing of the mind. People lost in temptations, obsessions and passion will find amethyst extremely powerful and effective to treat their unskillful habits.
The usage and spiritual functionality of this sacred mineral is not restricted to followers of one particular religion, gender nor era. In fact, the ritual importance and magical properties of amethyst is known to all the major world religions.
This delicate jewel, ring size (9), unmistakably will be an enhancement to its wearer, male or female, in search of a clear and focused mind.
If feeling ambivalent about decisions to make, there is a specific Hadith for guidance (Salat-l-Istikhara) which will also evoke the ring’s powers
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ شَرٌّ فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِيَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ ارْضِنِي بِهِ
Translation: (O Allah!)I ask guidance from Your knowledge, And Power from Your Might and I ask for Your great blessings. You are capable and I am not. You know and I do not and You know the unseen.
