The first mention of amethyst dates back as far as 4000 years BC. The name amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek word "amethystos", which means something like "counteracting the rush". From the Greeks to the Romans to the Egyptians, it was used against magic and evil thoughts. In 1727, the first amethyst from Brazil came to Europe. Since then, Brazil is considered the most famous mining area. It is also found in countries such as Australia, Mexico, Uruguay, Namibia, Austria, Sri Lanka and Madagascar. Amethyst is mainly formed in cavity fill and volcanic rocks. Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz. It crystallizes from ferruginous silica and also contains magnesium, aluminum, calcium, and sodium in small amounts.
The amethyst stands above all for spiritual purification, inner peace and wisdom. People admire its ability to calm the mind, relieve tension and, as already derived from its name, control addictions. In addition, it can also keep away negative energy, blockages or nightmares and purify the energies in the room due to its strong cleansing ability. Likewise, just looking at the stone is enough to let you cleanse from the inside. It is considered the stone of honesty and sincerity. It is ideal to strengthen your intuition and imagination, as well as to increase thought processes and your concentration. The powerful amethyst can help you turn your dreams into actions and challenge projects, as it is the stone that reminds you that making the right decisions in life requires clear thinking and a clear mind. It helps you keep calm and control your emotions, as well as alleviate sadness and grief and assist in coping with loss, and listen to those around you and better understand their thoughts and feelings. Just place your gemstone jewelry under your pillow for a restful sleep. Amethyst is associated with the crown chakra and is the sacred energy center, promoting the area of the larynx and vocal harmony. It is an excellent meditation stone. When the crown chakra is open and receptive, there is balance, well-being, deeper connection, and a confidence in one's wisdom. However, when the power of the crown chakra is blocked, you may feel alienated or disconnected from the world.
