A connection to our crown chakra
The word “amethyst” is derived from the ancient Greek word “amethustos,” which means “sober.” Legend goes amethyst prevented drunkenness and instilled a sober, serious mind. Goblets were crafted from the intoxicatingly beautiful stone as a way to keep drinkers clearheaded, not tipsy. In mythology, amethyst is quartz dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry. In ancient Egypt, the stone represented the zodiac sign of the goat, the enemy of vines and vineyards! Here’s why we love this gorgeous stone as an essential ingredient:
The birthstone of February, amethyst is set on the rings of bishops and in royal crown jewels. It’s also one of the most beloved crystals in the mineral kingdom for healing, because purple is associated with the the seventh chakra, the crown. Located atop of the head or slightly above, the crown chakra inspires wisdom, intuition, ecstasy and bliss and ultimately a higher consciousness and connection to the universal. Accordingly, amethyst is used to awaken, unleash and ignite.
