Amethyst was traditionally worn to guard against drunkenness and to instill a sober mind. The name comes from the Ancient Greek ἀa- (“not”) and μέθυστος methustos (“intoxicated”), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkeness. It is used as a dream stone and is helpful for anyone suffering with insomnia. Put an amethyst under your pillow to bring about pleasant dreams, or rub it across your forehead to offer relief from a headache. It offers protection from self-deception & witchcraft. Amethyst has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centers, making it a valuable power stone. It can also assist as a meditation aid when worn as a necklace.
