The name of this crystal is based on the Greek word "a-methystus", which in turn is based on the word "methy" and means "wine". Thus the word "a-methystus" could be translated as "sober". Specialists consider amethyst to be the "Intuitive Eye" among crystals, being placed on the list of the most important crystals.


Amethyst has a very important role in the role of protection, being a stone with a very high spiritual vibration. It brings a natural calm and protects from negative energies in the environment. It is a crystal that helps to remove all blockages and dependencies. On the mental level Amethyst can stimulate or calm, depending on the need of the moment. It is a recommended crystal for mediative practices, being an excellent choice to find stillness and deep understanding during meditation practices. Because of its beauty and transparency Amethyst is ideal for jewellery.

The properties of Amethyst are very closely related to the third eye, which is the centre of spirituality and intuition, and to the crown chakra, which governs our connection to the entire Universe. These energy centres can be associated with the colour purple, which explains why Amethyst is such a powerful crystal for balancing, opening and activating the third eye and crown chakra. Amethyst is considered to be one of the most popular crystals in the world precisely because its healing properties bring more peace, relaxation and spiritual awareness into one's life.

According to the legend attributed to the Amethyst crystal an extraordinarily beautiful young maiden named Amethysta refused the interest of the wine god Bacchus, preferring to keep her purity. The goddess of the hunt, the moon and birth, the goddess Diana, came to the aid of this young maiden and transformed the maiden into a statue of quartz, and Bacchus, impressed by the maiden's devotion, poured wine over the statue, which turned purple. On the other hand, in the Roman Empire it was believed that wearing amethyst stones would guarantee fidelity. Moreover, in the Catholic Church the pure colour of Amethyst is associated with wine transformed into the blood of Christ at the sacrament of the liturgy. Amethyst is also a representative crystal for bishops, as this crystal is found in the many rings used during religious ceremonies officiated by them.


The significance of the Amethyst crystal is very important for a wide variety of purposes. This calming stone allows for the quieting of the mind, which is extremely useful for sleep, meditation and generally moving forward in life in a higher state of well-being.

Spiritual practices are among the most common uses of Amethyst, especially when we desire a deep connection with intuition. In addition to facilitating intuition, Amethyst can help improve inner peace. It also supports relaxation and rest when you need it most, namely before going to bed, during stressful times in your life or before starting a meditation.

Thus, intuition becomes like a voice in your mind, guiding you in a subconscious way. For some it will be very subtle, for others it will be very obvious. Even though we often tend to ignore intuition, when we listen to it we will always be guided to our highest self.
