Amethyst is an essential healing crystal for your collection and a great starting point if you're just beginning your crystal journey! Amethyst brings protection and purification into your daily life and is a gentle yet necessary staple to your crystal collection.
As a crystal curator and "rehomer" of crystal orphans seeking new homes, Amethyst is one of the anchors of my inventory. And honestly, I always have a little Amethyst in my home, purse, car or any space I occupy.
Amethyst: (From The Pocket Book of Stones by Robert Simmons)
Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. It can be an aid to curbing over indulgence and giving up bad habits. It can be used to assist one in quitting smoking, drinking or drug use. It stimulates the crown chakra and is an aid to meditation, helping one to still one's thought and move into higher states of consciousness. It can clear one's energy field of negative influences and attachments and can facilitate he creation of an energetic shield around the wearer.
