Amethyst is thought of as a protective stone. It is linked to the crown chakra, helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts. This includes the negativity of stress and anxiety, which is why many meditate with Amethyst so as to rid themselves of that darkness. The Amethyst properties which facilitate intuition and communication can also be applied to increased work effectiveness.
The colour of Amethyst can range from shades of dark translucent purple to light purples. Each stone is unique and will vary in shape and colour from the images shown.
