Stone Medicine: Amethyst

Oh Amethyst, how I love thee even more now. Amethyst is a beautiful quartz varying in shades of purple due to the trace amounts of iron and aluminum. Because of her higher vibration and color wavelength, she is associated with the Third-eye and Crown chakras. She helps to open psychic awareness and connects us to the Divine. While meditating she helps us to achieve a high consciousness. I put my talismans I use for tarot/oracle readings on top of my amethyst clusters to charge them with power. I also place amethyst on my cards and always keep them on my altar where I do readings.

Physically and emotionally, amethyst is a powerful healer. She is known as the Sobriety Stone, as she helps people to release addictions and negative habits. If you are trying to release a negative habit, wear amethyst and every time you have a craving to slip into your old ways, rub the amethyst and imagine yourself free of the habit/pattern. Wear the amethyst until you feel this habit is gone! She is highly purifying and very protective of her owner.

She also known to help oxygenates the blood, which I experienced first hand the other day. I don't every really get headaches/migraines, so when I do, it knocks me out. It started at 3 pm and I could not shake the pain away no matter how much water I drank (and I really hate taking medication). So when I got home, I put lavender and peppermint oil (Thank you, Kami!) on my forehead and the nape of my neck, which relieved a lot of the pain. I then placed my biggest specimen on my forehead and relaxed like that for 20 minutes or so. 

I literally felt the Amethyst absorbing the pain from my head. And after 8 hours, my headache was gone 30 minutes!

If you only have small amethysts, I would put 1 or 2 on your forehead and one at the nape of your neck for extra measure.

So thankful I was able to go to bed pain-free. So thankful for the bones of our Mother Earth; they really are such great healers.

Have a wonderful, Saturday everyone!

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter


  1. yay glad the peppermint oil trick helped too!

  2. Amethyst is one of my absolute favourite stones. I have so much of it. I can never resist a pretty piece when I find it.

  3. i just so happen to have both of those oils and will definitely try the combination with my next headache. great info!

  4. The peppermint and lavender oil sounds wonderful! I gotta try that. I love amethyst. My first and only pentacle necklace was a gift from Jen when we were still long distance and in the middle of the pentagram is an amethyst stone. LOVE IT.

  5. curious thing here is that when you wrote about moonstone it urged me to go look my pieces out and it turned out I was in great need of it's healing. Just yesterday I resolved to dig a piece of amethyst on a long chain from my late Grandma out then this morning I came here and read this ... not a coinsidence I'm sure - things arriving exactly when they should. Thank you for your timely insights on amethyst Marissa x

  6. Amethyst is one of my favorite gems. It's interesting to read about the healing qualities.
