~ Crown chakra, ending bad habits ~
Amethyst is the violet colored form of quartz. It is found on every continent and its hardness is 7. Its name comes from the Greek, meaning "not drunken", and it was worn in ancient times as an amulet against drunkenness. It was believed to bring luck, ensure fidelity, and to protect from harm.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources now say that Amethyst does offer protection from negative energies in one's environment, and that it helps one to stay on one's highest path. It is said to enhance one's psychic abilities and aid in healing.
