Amethyst crystals should be used as a stone of peace and prosperity. Its presence elevates the vibrational state of the user, promoting the continued flow of positive energy.

When worn, it protects against thieves, all types of harm, sickness, and danger that may come across your path.
The History of Amethyst
Dating as far back as ancient Egypt, Amethyst has been prized not only for its beauty, but also its metaphysical properties. Ancient Egyptians considered it the stone of royalty, and would wear amethyst to protect themselves from feelings of guilt and fear. It was also worn by the ancient Egyptians to ward off the effects of witchcraft and ill-wishes. Much fine Amethyst has been recorded found in Egyptian tombs, including the tombs of their long dead ancient kings.
Over time, Amethyst also had its place in the Christian church, worn on Bishops’ rings. The royal purple color was known to symbolize Christ. There are a number of Biblical references to amethyst. The Hebrew word for Amethyst, “Achlamah” originated from the word “Dream-stone”, meaning it was potentially used during biblical times to protect from nightmares and induce prophetic dreams, just as it is still widely used for today. Additionally, Amethyst was one of the gems set into the breastplate of ancient Israel’s high priest. The twelfth foundation of the Holy City was built of amethyst. For some time, high quality Amethyst was valued equally to a diamond. Following large discoveries in South America and Africa it became more common. Today, Amethyst is easily one of the most popular crystals in the world.
The name Amethyst derives from the ancient Greek word “Amethustos” which means sober. It was said that an Amethyst could prevent the user from becoming excessively intoxicated, as it instills a sober, level-headed mindset. It was even believed that if a person were to drink from a cup or goblet made entirely of amethyst, he or she would be protected from over-intoxication.

For many, smoking in excess can heighten feelings of anxiety or paranoia, creating an uncomfortable environment. One of the key benefits of Amethyst we mentioned earlier is that it prevents over-intoxication and over-indulgence. When we look at how this applies to the experience of smoking, we can assume that the presence of Amethyst crystals will be able to prevent you from feeling “too high” or over-intoxicated. This results in a high-vibrational euphoric state of mind without any potential negative side effects like paranoia or anxiety.
