Amethyst, also known at the “Bishop’s Stone,” is one of the most beautiful, royal stones in the world of gems. Dressed in luxurious shades from the lightest of lilacs to the deepest most regal of purples, this stone is considered a “dream stone” which brings pleasant dreams and feelings of wellbeing. The word amethyst is derived from the Greek language and means “without drunkenness,” but don’t take the word drunkenness too literally: the idea relates to maintaining a true perspective of self – not a false reality. The stone induces clarity of vision, and self -awareness. In fact, the stone was worn in times past as a protection from self-deception, as well as protection from witch craft or the evil eye. The stone maintains compelling forces that are aligned with spiritual centeredness and spiritual wisdom. It is also aligned with healing, and when worn to protect the wearer and safeguard health, it should be worn near or close to that part of the body that requires healing and relief from pain, as it is thought to calm the nervous system. Folklore has it that amethysts, when placed in the home, in direct sunlight, will dispel negativity, and when exposed to the moonlight, especially the light of a full moon, will generate calmness and serenity for everyone in the home. Amethysts are powerful stones that calm fears and that induce serenity. They are frequently used in meditation, and to relieve stress and anxiety. This regal stone is associated with the birth month of February; however, its attributes can be felt by those born under other astrological signs as well, but its most intense benefits are for those born under the sign of Pisces. The color purple is associated with royalty, wealth, nobility, power, wisdom, dignity, mystery, and magic. In Elizabethan England, the Sumptuary Laws dictated which individuals could actually wear the color purple. These laws did not necessarily relate to wealth, as much as to those individuals with very high social standing: the royal family, for example. Only the most expensive of dyes could be used to create the richness of the color purple, and this is how the color eventually became associated with wealth and power. Give this gorgeous stone to the Queen in your life – your spouse, fiancée, mother, sister, daughter – she who is a royal presence in the Court of your life.
