Another thing I find Amethyst excellent for, is as a natural headache remedy. Forget the tylenol/paracetamol, forget the aspirin or ibuprofen: simply lie down, place an Amethyst at your crown (works best if the stone is in contact with your head), clear your mind and relax. Bye bye headache!

Kerri (sorry Ceida, I don’t mean to tread on your toes here), Amethyst is one of the two best stones for newcomers to crystal energy as, along with Rose Quartz, it bears the gentlest and kindest energies. Yes, you can keep an Amethyst in your pocket if, as you mention, it would be risky to wear it as jewellery (though depending on your job, a pendant worn under clothing may also be a good solution); as long as you keep the stone within your auric field, its energies will benefit you. If, however, you also keep hard metal objects such as keys in your pocket, I’d recommend finding a soft pouch for the stone, as keys can and will scratch Quartz.

Bonding with a crystal, especially for a “crystal newcomer” can be a somewhat slow process, because your mind, body and soul haven’t yet become accustomed to crystal power; but you can speed matters up by spending some quiet time with your stone, holding it in your non-dominant hand (your receiving hand) and generally just being with it. You can think of it as a new member of your family: you need to get to know it and vica versa. Believe me, the benefits of your Amethyst will increase exponentially once you’ve bonded! As to how you’ll know the bonding process is complete, well, I’ve always found, in 31 years of crystal work, that a new crystal doesn’t ‘feel new’ when it’s bonded; it feels like a friend you’ve known for years.

Love, Light and Blessings.

I’m new to ALL of this. I was looking at this particular stone bc I’m an Aquarius, and it seems to be extremely fitting for my needs. I have 3 questions though…can “wearing” the stone be as simple as placing it in your pocket? I cannot wear jewelry at work as it poses a safety hazard? How do you learn the chakras on the body to place them? And finally, as silly as it seems, how do you bond with the stone and know that you have properly done so?

Thank you

Hi, I’ve been working with crystals for 30 years now and Amethyst was one of the first two I had (the other being Rose Quartz). I’m the other kind of crystal healer, the kind that heals traumatised crystals, the usual side effect being that the crystal and I form an intense bond. Most of my experience with Amethyst matches perfectly with your article, but there’s one kind of Amethyst which I’ve only lately become aware of, which you don’t mention: Rose de France Amethyst. Does this have any special properties, other than those Amethyst possesses anyway? And, on another note, having servere Rheumatoid Arthritis and mild to moderate Asthma too, what would be better for me, Rose de France Amethyst or Blue Apatite? I’m frequently drawn to blue and purple stones alike (in 2004 I found a 6mm x 6mm, silver-set, princess cut blue topaz at a bus stop) but I’m honestly not sure which would be more beneficial.
