Spiritual Meaning of the Amethyst
If you are attracted to the Amethyst crystal, it means you crave healing on a deep level: mind, body and spirit. Violet purple stones get their powerful healing punch by combining the vibration of fire red and water blue. When you mix red and blue, you get purple. This combination of extreme energy, fire and water, makes the Amethyst such a powerful crystal. The Amethyst both boosts your energy and restores a calming balance and peace of mind. Simply keep one near you, to feel less worried and irritated. This stone is considered a Master Healer.
What are the Properties of the Amethyst Crystal?
The Amethyst is a form of quartz, consisting of silicon dioxide and iron. You can buy this crystal as an Amethyst cluster, Amethyst point or trigonic Amethyst. Up until the 1700’s this stone was considered a valuable gemstone, along with sapphires, diamonds and rubies. That was, until the discovery of large deposits in South America. Most of the amethyst on the market today comes from Brazil and Uruguay, although it can be found in South Africa and Mexico too.
3 Key Benefits of Amethyst Crystals
1. Heal From Past Hurts
This crystal helps you heal from past hurts. When people let you down, it can be really tough, and while you might try to forgive, there may still be lingering disappointments in your heart. The Amethyst helps to cleanse this pain, enabling you to trust people again. Combine with a Rose Quartz, if you need extra healing punch.
2. Protects From Psychic Attack
If you are a sensitive person, you are likely to feel drained by other people. When someone drains your energy, intentionally or unintentionally, this is known as a psychic attack. Someone can drain your energy, for example, by constantly dumping their problems or negative thoughts on you. Or you can feel drained by working in a busy office or dealing with the public in your job. If you suffer from psychic attacks, keep an Amethyst next to your bed. This way, you can heal while you sleep at the end of an exhausting day.
3. Clears Tension in Your Home
This Amethyst is great for blocking geopathic stress, that is, negative energy which comes from the ground deep beneath your home. Tunnels, pipes, sewers and underground streams may be a cause of energy disturbance and illness in your home. Signs that you or your loved ones are suffering from geopathic stress include: tension and arguments in the home, persistent headaches, depression, tiredness and tingling or numbness in the hands.
When Should You Use an Amethyst?
Expert Tip: Keep an Amethyst in the home, car and office. You cannot have too much of this crystal near you.
Unlike other crystals which I recommend you only use when needed, the Amethyst should be a permanent ornament in your home. You can buy an Amethyst cluster in all shapes and sizes, ideally the larger the better. See it as a major detoxer!
Where Should You Place Your Amethyst Crystal?
I recommend you keep an Amethyst in your bedroom, living room and work area.
Ideally leave the stone near a window, where it can absorb moonlight every night. Every month or so, wash your crystal in cold water to clean it.
What are the Healing Benefits of Amethyst?
This crystal can aid:
- Blood conditions
- Digestive disorders
- Depression, anxiety and paranoia
- Seizures and epilepsy
- Skin complaints
The Amethyst is considered a Master Healing stone. It can draw on healing energy from Higher Powers through your Crown Chakra. This chakra is located at the top of your head. When you meditate, lie down and place an Amethyst just above your head. Here, it will act as a channel or focal point, absorbing healing energy from around you, and directing the power through your body.

How to Set Intentions with an Amethyst Crystal
The Amethyst is a perfect crystal to use for setting an intention with an intention candle or altar. Use one large Amethyst, or a few smaller ones to attract:
Health. Especially mental health, or if you have one of the conditions outlined above in the health section.
Grief Healing. This crystal purifies your aura, and supports those coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
Love. Only use this crystal in an intention candle to attract love, if you have been hurt before and need help in opening up and trusting new people.
