You can use your amethyst crystal to calm your mind, heighten your psychic awareness and protect yourself from life's everyday stress.

Amethyst, the birthstone of Aquarius, is an extremely versatile crystal. You can place large chunks of it around your home to harness its soothing vibrations, wear smaller crystals in jewellery or use it in healing and your meditation.

It stimulates all the energy centres of your body, and also works on your mind and spirit. You can channel amethyst's power by carrying a small crystal in your pocket. Holding your crystal while you meditate enhances your mental clarity and improves your intuition and open-mindedness. 

The spiritualist's stone
Spiritualists have valued amethyst for its magical qualities for centuries. It is mentioned in the Bible, and is today mounted in the Fisherman's Ring worn by the Pope. Many spiritualists believe that the stone enables you to bring divine into the mundane parts of your life, helping your soul to feel grounded and comfortable in your physical body.
