Famous celebrities, like Madonna and Katy Perry, use amethyst crystals for focus, meditation, and comfort considering their highly energetic and creative lifestyle. Perry stated in a July 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, “I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst.” (I can say without a question, she has been successful in attracting male attention!)

The idea of using a gemstone for healing seems a bit controversial, but try to have an open mind and investigate the positive energy they can emit. Out of all the ‘Feng shui’ healing stones,  the amethyst gemstone remains one of the most noted for its magical capabilities.

So, it’s time to put down the pill bottle and instead, carry a purple amethyst quartz stone around your neck. Additionally:

  • Place a stone inside your pillow at night to help get some good ZZZ’s as amethyst helps with several sleeping disorders.
  • To endure a safe journey when traveling, place a handful of amethyst crystals in your vehicle, they make great travel companions.
  • Place some tumbled and polished amethyst nuggets in the corners of your office or home. Amethyst is great to have around where tensions and excessive emotions can run high and people have trouble communicating their emotions in a calm manner. The crystals will protect and purify your space and energy, for negativity; add higher energy to the room, and smooth the path to a more meditative state by cleaning the mind of unnecessary clutter.
