“Amethyst” is Greek for "not drunk." It weakens the effect of alcohol. Warriors in ancient Greece used to drink wine in amethyst cups before going into battle.
It is a soothing stone that calms the mind and as such it helps people with difficulty sleeping and calms anger.
Amethyst supports us in our spiritual transitions (transitioning from life to death) and helps us understand that death is not the end, but rather a station on one’s journey.
It is excellent for use in situations of fatigue and exhaustion.
It also soothes pain caused by bites, and helps alleviate headaches.
