Associated with: transmutation, intuition, creativity, positive manifestation

Amethyst is a powerful addition to anyone’s toolbox for energy work. In her book, Crystals and Dragons, Linda Thomas calls it “the alchemist of stones”, as its unique vibration transmutes toxic energy into love, making it a good stone for healing physical, mental and emotional addictions. In fact, amethyst derives from the Greek word, amethystos, meaning “not drunken”, and was used to prevent drunkenness in ancient times.
The purple colors strongly resonate with one’s third eye, amplifying creativity and intuition. Its transmutation properties make amethyst an excellent stone for transforming anxiety and negative thoughts to love, blocking the manifestation of one’s fears and opening the way for positive energy to influence your thoughts.
Bonus tip! Place an amethyst under or near your pillow at night to help relieve nightmares and promote lucid dreaming.
