Amethyst has been one of the world’s most revered minerals since ages. Excavated in many sites around the globe, this crystal has a vast history of admirers amongst almost all ancient civilizations, because of its intriguing intensely saturating beauty.
Already the Neolithic people in Europe were familiar with the stone, and used it as a mere decorative item around 25,000 B.C.
In ancient Greece and Rome, amethyst was used in several ways from beads, to drinking vessels and from jewelry to amulets.
Throughout ancient times, the amethyst was highly valued and it was generally believed that the crystal’s meaning was synonymous with wealth and luxury. Therefore, we often find the Amethyst highlighting parts of crowns, scepters and rings in royal collections. Bishops in the middle ages wore amethyst rings. The violet color symbolized royalty and an allegiance to Christ. For that same reason the Catholic clergy carries amethyst in their crucifixes, symbolizing their piety and celibacy.
The name amethyst derives from Greek, meaning, “not drunken.” An ancient Greek myth explains, how amethyst drinking vessels were used, to prevent from intoxication, after excessive abuse of alcohol.
In Feng Shui, amethyst’s meaning is different, yet again familiar. Its magical properties are not related to sobriety, but of wealth in this ancient harmonizing philosophy. If placed amongst wealth, amethyst can amplify the flow of prosperity into the home.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz, which gives it a crystal trigonal system. Its violet color is the result of iron and aluminum deposits, combined with natural irradiation and the stone itself is made up of silicon dioxide.
Amethyst’s healing and magical properties are as numerous as the stone itself. Above all it is believed to be a protective crystal, helpful to purify the mind by clearing it of negative thoughts, stress and anxiety.
The crystal’s powers are especially useful in regards to work-related stress, because of the stone’s association to abundance.
