the Hebrews, it was Ahlamah, the ninth stone in the breastplate of the
High Priest; engraved with the tribe of Dan, as well as the twelfth
foundation stone for the New Jerusalem. To the Egyptians, it was Hemag,
listed in the Book of the Dead to be carved into heart-shaped amulets
for burial. In Eastern cultures, it was listed in descriptions of sacred
“gem-cities”, “trees of life”, and used in temple offerings for
worship. It was also often used to align planetary and astrological
influences. Additionally, Amethyst was popular in rosaries and prayer
beads. It was credited with creating an atmosphere of pious calm,
imbuing a sense of mental peace, and quietude.

Amethyst is an exceptional crystal for wearing on the body, for use in
healing rituals, and for enhancing one’s environment. It has been known
to fade in direct sunlight and care should be taken. It is also good to
clear its energies from time to time by holding the stone under running
water for a short period while affirming that the stone is cleared. Keep
unpolished Amethyst near other crystals to recharge them.
