Amethsyt ~ February Birthstone
Amethyst is a powerhouse stone with many benefits. It vibrates at a high frequency, creating a bubble of spiritual protection against negative energy. Amethyst is a natural stress reliever that encourages inner strength and peace and brings clarity of the mind - helping you make wiser decisions free of emotional confusion.
The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue.
Using Amethyst to decorate the home is a choice many make for its appearance, alone. However, the stone can have many metaphysical benefits as well if placed in the right room. An Amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding time, and provide the confidence and calm necessary for open communication. Amethyst in the office will bring intuition for making tough, gut decisions in business, and stress-relief for long work days. Placing an Amethyst somewhere in the bathroom is another way to relieve anxiety during a soothing bath.
