Amethyst is a form of quartz most commonly purple. It has strong healing powers and is especially useful in providing pain relief. You can place an amethyst crystal directly on a part of your body in pain and it will gently draw it out while releasing any stuck energy. In this way, it is very effective in relieving tension headaches and migraines by placing directly on your forehead or sinuses. Amethyst crystals help with intuition and insight, connecting to higher self and the Divine, insomnia, stress, anxiety, safe travel, nightmares, and addiction. It is associated with the third eye and crown chakras. Its shape can appear natural, in points, clusters, geodes, tumbled and polished, or cut. Amethyst is a wonderfully versatile stone.
Amethyst is the first crystal many metaphysicians choose to use due to its protective and powerful nature. Often times, amethyst was used in ancient times to help people with addictions and is now known as the stone of sobriety. This crystal has strong healing energy that can help transform any negative energy in your spirit into love energy. If you feel that your third eye chakra is out of balance, amethyst has the ability to provide the peaceful energy you will need for meditation. It can also be used to activate the crown chakra to connect to the Divine and enhance your spiritual awareness.
