Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary
powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. It is a semi-precious stone in today’s
classifications, but to the ancients, it was a “Gem of Fire”; a Precious Stone worth, at times in history,
as much as a Diamond.
Amethyst has always been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune,
their water god. Therefore, it should be no surprise that it is the traditional birthstone of that month.
It is the stone of St. Valentine and faithful love
Throughout history, the special virtue of Amethyst has been that of preventing drunkenness and
overindulgence. Ancient Greeks and Romans routinely studded their goblets with Amethyst believing
that wine drunk from an Amethyst cup would not lead to intoxication. They also believed that an
Amethyst worn on the body, especially at the navel, had a sobering effect not only for inebriation but
for over-zealousness in passion as well.
Catholic bishops also wore Amethyst in a ring to protect them from mystical intoxication. Kissing the
ring kept others from similar mystical intoxication and kept them grounded in spiritual thought.
Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown, and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as
well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater
understanding and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
Amethyst’s ability to expand the higher mind also enhances one’s creativity and passion. It
strengthens the imagination and intuition and refines the thinking processes. It helps in the
assimilation of new ideas, putting thought into action, and brings projects to fruition. Amethyst is
also well-known as a talisman of focus and success.
