Benefits of amethyst

Amethyst has been known since ancient times. The Pharaohs already used it as a luxury product for making their jewelry. It also adorns the bishops’ ring, which is purple like their clothing. Hence its name “Pierre des évêques”, which is supposed to give them clarity of mind.

Amethyst has always been a symbol of elegance and nobility. It would also be linked to the sixth chakra, the so-called “third eye”, a symbol of intuition, discernment, and self-knowledge.

This stone stimulates meditation and creativity. It provides both physical and psychological benefits.
