THE NAME AMETHYST STEMS FROM the an­cient Greek word amethys­tos, which trans­lates as “not in­tox­i­cated.” For cen­turies, this crystal has rep­re­sented self-con­trol and so­bri­ety. Known to help peo­ple over­come un­healthy habits, amethyst works its magic by un­cov­er­ing the deeper-rooted is­sues that ini­tially led to ad­dic­tion, and it aids in un­der­stand­ing and re­leas­ing them. When us­ing this min­eral, ex­pect to have many aha mo­ments, as it cre­ates a free-flow­ing path­way be­tween you and the divine en­ergy of the uni­verse. Amethyst sur­rounds us with a light of pro­tec­tion as it en­cour­ages spir­i­tual ex­plo­ration and self-dis­cov­ery. It can also help us over­come fears, ac­cess wis­dom, and de­fend against stress and neg­a­tive en­ergy while you find sup­port­ive and sta­ble en­vi­ron­ments in which to grow, strengthen your im­mune sys­tem, and bring bal­ance to the brain and ner­vous sys­tem. COLOR Light vi­o­let to deep mauve.

HOW TO USE IT Wear amethyst jew­elry as pro­tec­tion against ad­dic­tive be­hav­ior. Place it in your home for sta­bil­ity and sup­port. Med­i­tate with amethyst to un­veil un­seen mo­tives and rea­son­ing be­hind cer­tain be­hav­iors. Place a piece of amethyst un­der your pil­low to help with in­som­nia, and rub a tum­bled or pol­ished pieced on your fore­head to dis­si­pate headaches.
