      GEMSTONE MAGIC & MEANING: AMETHYST

      GEMSTONE MAGIC & MEANING: AMETHYST

      • Traditional birthstone of February
      • Zodiac sign for Pisces

      Amethyst is one of the best stones for those who are new to crystal healing.  Its violet color is well known as the highest spiritual color and vibration, representing the “flame of transmutation” that burns up negativity, transforming what was there into a fertile fount of inner power from which to build something new and intentional.  It has a calming and peaceful effect on the mind and body that encourages the opening of intuition, allowing the seedlings of positive change to take root.  Its powerful yet soothing energy helps to break up old emotional thought processes, and helps one to more easily see their situation from the perspective of their higher mind, connected with their soul’s purpose rather than being (as we so often are) swept up in the emotion and drama of the expectations and experiences that surround us in the day-to-day.

      Amethyst helps the bearer to overcome fears and cravings. It historically symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom. The Greek word “amethystos” can be translated as “not drunken”. In Greek mythology, Dionysus (the god of intoxication and wine) was pursuing a maiden named Amethystos, who refused his affections. Amethystos prayed to the gods to remain chaste, a prayer which the goddess Artemis answered, transforming her into a white stone. Humbled by Amethystos’ desire to remain chaste, Dionysus poured wine over the stone as an offering, dyeing the crystals purple.

      Amethyst helps to bring calmness and clarity to the mind, while fostering healing and selflessness. It is an excellent stone for meditation and is known as the “stone of transformation”.  It is said to bring wisdom by keeping the wearer connected to and aware of their more spiritual nature. It is a wonderful stone for dream work, past life work, and can help you clearly see your path. Using this stone in meditation may also help you to develop your psychic abilities and open your crown chakra enhancing connection with the spiritual realm while protecting against psychic attack. Because of its innately soothing energy, amethyst is particularly powerful for assisting in overcoming sleep disorders and bad dreams. Putting amethyst under your pillow at night can help to transform these negative experiences into positive, and encourage lucid dreaming as well as astral projection adventures!

      While we always have TONS more gemstone jewelry available in stores than online, many pretty pieces of our Rudraksha jewelry feature amethyst, and we have some lovely amethyst rings and pendants available online as well.  Check these out at Mexicali Blues online, or visit any of our stores in Maine to see the potent and powerful beauty of this stunning gem in a wide variety of unique (often one-of-a-kind) shapes and settings.

      GEMSTONE MAGIC & MEANING: RHODOCHROSITE

      GEMSTONE MAGIC & MEANING: RHODOCHROSITE

      Rhodochrosite is revered as a stone of love, creativity, and balance.  It is sometimes called the Stone of the Compassionate Heart, and it can help one to heal their own emotional wounds and then use their subsequent emotional empowerment to help others. This stone can help heal and redirect energy away from unhealthy patterns, particularly those dealing with irrational fears or anxiety.  It encourages acceptance of the whole self, including negative thoughts and painful emotions, enhancing the ability to see–often in a new way–that the shadow side of the human experience is just as valuable, and is often what we will draw from in order to be a positive force in the world.  Its powerful vibration of love, forgiveness, and compassion for the true self makes this stone a wonderful helper in alleviating feelings of low self-worth and helping the bearer come to true self-acceptance, and to also connect with that same spirit of compassion when dealing with others.
