Amethyst is one of the best crystals for meditation. The amethyst colour stimulates the highest vibration of the Third Eye, and placing an Amethyst stone directly over this area ushers in a serene meditative state that stills conscious thought and guides the mind toward deeper understanding.
Amethysts were stones worn by Women during the Suffragette period in a time when women demanded the vote, they would wear purple, white and green: purple symbolized dignity, white purity, and green hope for a better future. We owe them a lot ! ♥
