Amethyst Healing Properties
Amethyst is perfect for helping you let go of not-so-good habits or lifestyle behaviors. For centuries, it has been connected with sobriety and spirituality and will help increase your serenity and calmness. But also, if you need some motivation, amethyst can help you set realistic goals and stimulate your mind when you need it.
Amethyst also helps you work toward inner peace and allows you to rest and relax when you need to most – before bed, during a stressful situation, or before you begin a meditation.
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz. It is part of the hexagonal crystal system. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone with a vitreous or glassy luster. It often comes in shades of violet and purple.
