Amethyst “The intuitive eye”


Introduction To Amethyst

Despite its prevalence, Amethyst has been one of the most revered stones in the world for many centuries. Found in so many places like Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, Africa, Canada, Russia, USA and Europe, this stone has a rich history of amazing civilizations with its breathtaking and saturated beauty. While Neolithic people in Europe it as a simple decorative emblem around 25,000 BC, ancient Greeks and Romans used Amethyst in various ways, from pearls in jewelry to amulets. These ancient civilizations placed a high value in this stone. Their belief was that the meaning of amethyst crystal was synonymous with luxury. The Christian bishops once wore amethyst jewelry in the form of a ring. Its color was to symbolize royalty and fidelity to Christ. Members of the Catholic clergy wore amethyst stone in their crosses because their Amethyst meaning was that of piety and celibacy. It is even thought that the plate of the chest of the High Priest of Israel was adorned with an amethyst as his ninth stone. It is said that there were ten stones on which the names of the tribes of Israel were engraved, and it is believed that Amethyst was one of these stones.

Meaning Of Amethyst

The name Amethyst translates to Greek as “not drunk”.”An ancient Greek myth explains this seemingly strange name. According to the myth, the god Bacchus was angry, and he vowed to descend a wedge of Tigers on the first person who crossed his path. Amethyst was going to give thanks to the light of the God Diana, when it happened to Bacchus. Before the Tigers could eat Amethyst, she was rescued by Diana,who turned her into a clear crystal. Bacchus, repented for the fate that had so recklessly caused the girl, poured grape juice on the stone as an offering, and thus bestowed the crystal with its unique purple coloring. The Greeks gave amethyst the meaning of Crystal, perpetuating a belief that could inhibit the intoxication of everyone who wore it. In the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui, the meaning of Amethyst is very different. Amethyst properties are not of sobriety, but of wealth in this ancient technique of harmonization. If put in the corner of wealth, Amethyst can amplify the flow of prosperity in the House.

Amethyst crystal is one of several varieties of quartz, which gives it a trigonal crystal system. With a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale, it is a durable stone. Its shade from lavender to purple is the result of deposits of iron and aluminum, as well as natural irradiation. Amethyst stone consists of silicon dioxide.
