Brazilian found and purple in colour, Amethyst has a natural calming effect; it relieves stress, soothes irritability and help you achieve a balanced mindset. This semi-precious stone has a huge list of benefits - and it’s great to keep nearby or in your palm to ease tension headaches and strain around the head. If you like to meditate, lie down and place the stone on your third eye or on top of your Crown Chakra while sitting crossed legged. Placing it under a pillow at night can promote quiet, recuperative sleep and prevent nightmares. Amethyst is also considered a powerful protection stone that can guard against psychic attacks. The name Amethyst derives from the ancient Greek word ”amethystos”, meaning sober, that can help you balance the overindulgence. It’s a true healer of body, mind and soul.
