What is Amethyst meaning and properties?

Amethyst is a violet quartz which is a semiprecious stone often used in jewelry and is the traditional birthstone for February. Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation, iron impurities (in some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities), and the presence of trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. The hardness of the mineral is the same as quartz, thus it is suitable for use in jewelry. But what making Amethyst popular in jewelry making is not its beautiful outside look, but its unique meaning and property.


In history, Amethyst was used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in antiquity for intaglio engraved gems. The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue.

The Greeks believed that amethyst gemstones could prevent poisoning, while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as a battle protection because they believe that amethyst can heal people and keep them calm. Anglican bishops wear an episcopal ring often set with an amethyst, an allusion to the description of the Apostles as "not drunk" at Pentecost in Acts 2:15.

Healing Properties

Amethyst is a powerful stone that awakens higher consciousness, assists in informed decision making, feel free of emotional confusion, and promotes meditation and intuition. Amethyst is a multi-layered purification stone - it helps to directly purify the aura, one of which is to support your decision to make your mind clear, such as avoiding or quitting smoking, drinking or taking drugs.

Amethyst often represents the 6th (3rd eye) and 7th (Crown) chakras, providing mental ability, intuition and psychological understanding. Amethyst is a great choice for crystal if you want to expand your spiritual sense or connect with the sacred.You can use it in meditation to achieve high frequency states and contact your guides. Amethyst is especially helpful as a protective ward when journeying in other realms, as it vibrates at a high frequency which cancels out or blocks lower frequencies.

The healing properties of amethyst are particularly useful in regards of work-related stress, as stones are also associated with abundance; therefore, stress is relieved while releasing prosperity. Amethyst features that promote intuition and communication can also be used to increase productivity.
