Amethyst is in the quartz family, and it is known for its beautiful purple color, which can range from pale lavender to intense violet.
Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone that works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience. Amethyst got its name from the Ancient Greek word meaning “not intoxicated” and often thought to stimulate the ability to think more clearly and not be clouded with emotion of any specific sort. Because of its properties, amethyst is an invaluable crystal when you have to solve a difficult problem with others, especially one where emotions are running high – or one where, as is so often the case, lots of people are talking, but no one is listening, and no one really knows what’s going on.
