      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 MEANING & MAGIC: LABRADORITE

      GEMSTONE MEANING & MAGIC: LABRADORITE

      According to Inuit mythology, Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. A stone of magic and power, this iridescent gemstone can help the bearer to connect with their psychic abilities or magical gifts.  A particularly potent stone for meditation, it opens new doors of perception by connecting one to the Universal flow of energies that suffuse our world.

      Labradorite is a power stone, allowing you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals. It is excellent for strengthening intuitions, stimulating imagination, and enhancing enthusiasm.  Wearing or carrying labradorite creates a sense of excitement and adventure, motivating and inspiring one to take the steps required to go where you have not gone before!  Also helpful once on those adventures, this powerful stone protects the bearer’s aura, clears negativity, and can strengthen and seal it to prevent energy leaks.

      It is a particularly potent stone to work with during the New Moon, as this lunation is a time of great creativity, powerful magic, and new beginnings.  Labradorite will help you set and pursue new intentions of manifestation, lighting up the path and helping you find your way.
