Amethyst - Polished Point

The name Amethyst is derived from the Greek word amethustos - meaning to be non-intoxicated.  Amethyst has a sobering, tranquil energy that gives it the clearing effect it is widely known for. These properties of Amethyst helps those who work with it to alleviate stress, worry, and anxiety.

Amethyst crystals are also accepted as spirit crystals, meaning that they help facilitate connection to the spirit realm.

In order to connect with spirit, you must first be able to open up your third eye chakra and allow the connection between you and the spirit realm to blossom.

The spiritual meaning of Amethyst says that it is a stone that not only fosters the connection with spirit, but that it also offers protective energy against any other being that you may not have been intending on connecting with.
