Amethyst is a stone that when you hold it - you feel harmonious. It is a favorite of mine to use in treatments because of its balancing effect. It ranges in color from deep purple to a pale lavender. The deepest colors of amethyst can be found right here in Colorado. I think I'll look into where this stone is found and take a day trip!
In a treatment - I will place amethyst either right above the head or on the top of the forehead to activate the crown chakra. This crystal has been linked to the high priestess and can be queenly while still feeling cozy. If you want to do some crystal work yourself - and are not sure where to start - matching crystal colors to chakra colors can be a easy method to begin using them. The color violet is associated with the crown chakra. In most cases - crystals that are the same color as the color associated to a chakra can be used to help facilitate healing. Make sure to hold the crystal first to check in with yourself that it feels beneficial.
Amethyst is a facilitator in shifting low energy to a higher frequency through it's ability to clear the aura. It helps to release stagnant, dysfunctional energy within the physical body and brings about feelings of perfect peace. It is a wonderful support for individuals who are wanting to change addictive patterns. Amethyst's vibrations are heightened by the number three.
Carry three amethyst crystals with you to ward off psychic attacks and to bring yourself balance intellectually, spiritually, and physically.
