Amethyst: A Striking Purple Gem of Sobriety

Amethyst is a beautiful form of quartz crystal and it’s color ranges from pale lavender to the darkest shade of violet. It is a crown chakra gem that helps you focus on your goals, especially if you are trying to quit an addiction. Amethyst is actually known as the gem of sobriety.

Addiction is actually a mental problem and Amethyst, a crown chakra gem, addresses any illness with that chakra. It’s also a third eye chakra gem that helps you calm your mind while meditating.

Amethyst also transform negative energy into love without you even blinking. It blocks all types of negative frequencies (vibes from your phones, etc) while helping you to stay calm and focused on whatever it is you are doing.

The color purple is also a color that represents royalty and amethyst was often treasured by kings, queens, emperors of the past distant and recent. Legends have it that Amethyst was the 9th stone of the breastplate of Israel’s’ high priest. Amethyst carries that vibration of nobility while reminding you to stay grounded and humble.


Amethyst helps soothe fears and reminds you to focus on your dreams, not your obstacles. It encourages serenity and calms rage. It brings awareness that even though we are all different, we are all one. We are all spiritual beings in human bodies, but our human bodies are made of the oldest pieces of stardust born of planets and stars.
