History and Uses

Amethyst derives its name from ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated” and relates to an ancient Greek legend. Dionysus, the god of celebration and revelry, declared he would have revenge on mortals for not drinking his wine. He decided to have the beautiful maiden named Amethyst eaten by his tigers while she was on her way to worship at the temple of Artemis, the virgin huntress. So, she called to Artemis for protection and the goddess turned her into a pure white quartz statue to save her from the tigers. When Dionysus saw how beautiful she was he was filled with remorse for his ruthlessness. He began to weep into his cup of wine which then spilled over the quartz statue turning it a beautiful shade of purple.

Amethyst can range in colour from lilac pink, to purple red to deep purple. In ancient times the Romans inlaid their cups with it, believing it would protect them from drunkenness. Similarly, Catholic bishops wore Amethyst rings to prevent mystical intoxication. Likewise, kissing the ring was thought to keep people focused on spiritual thoughts. It was used for protection from black magic and treachery and to ensure victory in war and in hunting.

Geological Description

Clear Quartz Crystal Healing Properties

Clear Quartz encourages clarity of thought and purpose to one’s heart and mind. It works on all levels of the energetic and physical bodies. Similarly, it works with all the chakras. It will amplify any energy with which it moves into resonance, including other stones. It constantly broadcasts that energy into the Earth’s electromagnetic field. This makes it an excellent stone to use for healing, manifestation or prayer work. Also, it helps to establish a strong, clear connection to higher guidance.

History and Uses

This crystal has been used as a healing tool since the ancient times. In Shamanic practices Clear Quartz is referred to as the “light-stone”, an instrument of clairvoyance. Australian Aborigines and the Prairie Indians of North America traditionally used Quartz as a talisman for visionary work. The Navajo believed it to be Clear Quartz that first caused the Sun to cast its light upon the world. The six sided hexagonal shape of Quartz crystal points allow them to hold a programme or intention. That energy is then magnified and radiated it out into the surrounding area.

Geological Description

Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal which grows in a large variety of formations. Although the majority of Quartz is from Arkansas, Brazil and Madagascar it is one of the most abundant minerals on Earth. However, it can be found in almost every continent in the world. Crystal Quartz exhibits the property of piezoelectricity. As a result, this means it can transform mechanical energy (e.g. pressure) into electromagnetic energy and vice versa.

Selenite refers exclusively to the transparent and colourless form of gypsum. As such, it is best to cleanse these crystals with a smudge stick or singing bowl as it will dissolve if placed in water. They are believed to be great cleansers of other crystals when placed in close quarters.

Geological Description

Selenite is a form of Gypsum. This is a hydrous calcium sulphate mineral with a hardness of 2. It forms as an evaporate in clay beds and around hot springs. As a result, Selenite is found in many countries including Australia, Mexico, Greece and the USA.
