The Amethyst Stone is a noble Stone, which has been used by many civilisations to decorate the most precious goods of the most eminent members of society. Thus, Amethyst Stone may have adorned the headdresses and sceptres of the pharaohs, the British Crown or the personal items of many Tsars of Russia. It is also a favourite stone for clergy of all kinds: a symbol of bishops in Christianity, it is also highly prized by the Buddhist clergy. Beyond its many lithotherapy properties, Amethyst Stone is admired for its violet shades. Sometimes diaphanous with fragile purplish reflections, sometimes almost purple and opaque, Amethyst has fascinated men since they began to grasp the magical and aesthetic virtues of precious stones.
Cut like this with a Long Prism, the Amethyst Stone is kept preciously in the pocket, like a lucky charm, or tied around the neck like a Pendant. It bestows on its wearer many virtues related to wisdom and relaxation, which can help in times of trouble or agitation.
