Amethysts have been the subject of legend and myth, including one about mental health.
In Greek mythology, a titan named Rhea gave the god of wine, Dionysus, an amethyst to help preserve his sanity. In fact, this myth led the ancient Romans to believe that amethysts could keep them from getting drunk.
Today natural health practitioners don’t use amethysts for the same purpose as the Romans, though some do use them in treating addiction.
Instead, amethysts are said to promote serenity and calm. Those who work with crystals may use the gemstones as a way to help reduce your anxiety and perceptions of pain.
Yet, scientists haven’t proven any of these claims regarding amethyst’s ability to enhance mental health.
Metaphysical properties claims
Amethysts are reported to open a person’s third eye. The third eye is considered to be a source of power and wisdom.
Crystal practitioners believe a person can use amethysts to enhance or sharpen spiritual visions and enlightenment. Again, these are scientifically unproven claims.
Metaphysical crystal practitioners may also believe that amethyst geodes or crystals placed in your home will absorb negative energy and create an air of tranquility in the space.
Plus, they claim that amethysts help block electromagnetic frequencies and “geopathic stress” that can foster negativity. This is said to occur when human-made objects disrupt the earth’s natural energy.
