Amethyst Mystical Powers & Physical Properties


The magical stone of love and sex with the color and effect of a beautiful Bordeaux. The Greek nymph, Amethystos, rejected the musings and flirtations of Dionysus, the god of wine. Being a virgin, Amethystos didn't know she was a nympho, yet..... so in an effort to avoid self-actualizing, she got on her knees and prayed to Artemis, also a virgin and a goddess. Artemis morphed Amethystos into a clear whitish stone to preserve her purity and make her, impenetrable by a mere mortal. But, as story would have it, Dionysus stumbled drunkingly, or perhaps craftily, and spilled his wine no Amethystos crystal turning it purple. 

The deep purple hue of Amethyst made it the power and wealth gem of choice with the Royals of Ancient Mediterranean, and eventually the Crown, being embroidered and sewn into royal robes, and as valued as rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. 

The British Crown Jewels include Amethyst..... royalty go. ....the Royal Sceptre with the Cross, the Kent Demi-Parure and brooches worn by Queen Elizabeth II and other females in the Royal Family.

Amethyst is the February birthstone.

THE AMETHYST CHAKRAS - 6th and 7th Chakras -

The upper most chakras, including chakras 6 and 7 (crown  are grounded and ethereal in nature. ... The 6th chakra ("third eye" chakra) is about intuition and imagination. It's located between the eyebrows and is at times referred to as the third eye or brow chakra. It's associated with the color indigo and element of light. Kind of like the third eye blind of a man, and for the woman, the brow at the top of the enlightened tunnel of love, and for the rest of us, just that point of love.

Third Eye - 6th Chakra

translates to “beyond wisdom.” This chakra opens up your mind to information beyond the material world and the 5 senses.

Extrasensory perception, intuition or psychic energy, all come from the third eye.

There is actually a small pinecone-shaped gland in your brain that takes in light. This gland, the pineal gland, is responsible for helping you feel awake in the daytime and sleepy at night.

Long before brain imaging, ancient cultures knew this Third Eye existed, and they also realized it received information from sources outside of the five senses.

Color: Indigo

Location: The third eye’s center is in between your eyebrows. It radiates down to your mouth and up to the top of your head.

What balanced feels like: A balanced third eye is a beautiful thing, and it’s really what you are trying to achieve when you start on a path to spiritual development.

When your third eye chakra is balanced, you will equally feel in tune with both the physical world and the material world. You will receive psychic information as frequently as you receive information from your 5 physical senses, but it will not overwhelm you.

The Crown - 7th Chakra

The 7th Chakra is the Crown or "Sahaswara" which translates to “thousand petaled.” This chakra is pure consciousness energy without the fire of destruction; i.e., light without consequence other than communication.

The Crown chakra is one of those energies that’s hard to explain.

You can think of it like magnetism.

When you hold a piece of metal to a magnet, you can feel the energy and tension, but you can’t see it. Consciousness energy is everywhere and in everything. It connects us to the entire universe.

Our own personal consciousness is located in the 7th chakra, but it’s really more like the seed of a universal energy than something personal or individual.
