Regal Gem

This beauty belongs to the element wind and is assigned to the 6th, 7th and etheric (8th and above the head) chakras.  Colors varies from pale to deep grape purple.  The Amethyst has been viewed  as a gem of royalty and priests dating back to the B.C.time line.  It’s meaning “not drunken” derives from the Greek language and it was obviously  believed to prevent drunkenness, along with the power to calm anger.

This stone is rightfully used for protection, purification tasks and curbing overindulgence.  The Amethyst stimulates the crown chakra, thus it is used to aid the user in meditation and to achieve a higher state of consciousness.  Because of its abilities, it facilitates the manifestation of an energetic field of Light which wards of negativity.  The Amethyst is a necessity for any Lightworker and should be kept in every home.

Since it is a stone belonging to the element wind, it stimulates the mind and intuitiveness.  This particular gem stimulates brain function and is often used for psychic work.  Due to it’s very high energy frequency it is always used as a barrier against lower energies, shielding the Lightworker while activating the connection to higher realms.
