Amethyst Properties & Meaning
Amethyst is a variety of Quartz mainly composed of Iron, which gives it its beautiful nuances of purple. It’s considered the most popular purple gem, which is perhaps in part due to its consistent Mohs hardness of 7 that is strong-enough for use in most types of jewelry. Amethyst is known as the “Stone of Peace” that raises the vibrations of both people and spaces. In doing so, it encourages spiritual development and intuition while enhancing psychic abilities. Amethyst also conducts positive energy, which generates harmony and tranquility to its surroundings. When needed, this crystal can bring mental clarity by purifying, regenerating, and amplifying one’s connection with the Spirit of the Universe. Moreover, Amethyst facilitates dreaming, meditation, and channeling messages from the spiritual realm. This purple Quartz also helps to reduce stress, worry, anger, and impatience, while cooling hot tempers.
