Amethyst is one of the best crystals to start your crystal collection. It is a most often a beautiful violet colour, but it can range from very pale lavender to a deep purple. It is easily found in natural points, clusters, and polished and tumbled shapes.
I compiled the main properties of amethyst from several crystal books. These properties are the most common ones that most crystal experts agree on.
What better way to start a new season than to create a new resource category: Crystals! I use crystals extensively within my meditation and Reiki practice. I find that crystals allow for an easier focal point in mediation and also set the energetic intention of a session. Crystals work on every level of your being: physical; mental; emotional; and spiritual. Crystals have been used for centuries and we are naturally drawn to these beautiful manifestations of the earth.
Crystals carry intention. Almost any crystal will work for you if your intention is strong enough. However, each crystal has its own energy signature that can magnify whatever is needed in your life. Knowing just a little bit about the basic nature of crystals will enhance your spiritual practice.
I have been working with and studying crystal healing for over 20 years. I have a large collection of books just on crystal uses. Through out my reading I found that each crystal book had different descriptions of what each crystal did. Pretty soon my head was swimming with information overload.
I solved that problem pretty much the way I always do. With statistics!!
I combined my big nerd brain and my love of crystals to explore crystal meanings from as many different authors and books that I could find. I put all the information together in one giant spreadsheet to figure out what are the main actions of each crystal.
I recently found the perfect software that can display the information in a pretty and easy to understand way. I will be adding a page for each crystal as I build and update my giant table. Maybe it will even be a book one day!
