Amethyst is a very powerful gemstone that enhances spiritual awakening and spiritual growth. It carries a strong vibration that resonates with the crown chakra, connecting you straight to the Divine. Our ancient ancestors wore Amethyst to relieve anxiety and confusion and to enhance focus, increase intuition, stimulate psychic abilities, and to help them sleep. Wearing Amethyst gemstones can actually build a protective energy shield around the body to protect you from psychic and emotional attack. Amethyst is also known around the world as the “sobriety stone” as it comes from the Greek word “amethusos”, meaning “not drunk”. Many people wear Amethyst for its ability to strengthen resolve and to bring the body back to a state of normalcy and peace.
