Amethyst relieves stress, dispels anger and anxiety. Additionally, Amethyst like all purple stones stimulate the Third Eye Chakra and attracts divine energy.
The Amethyst is the stone of St. Valentine, who is said to have always worn it. During the Middle Ages in the days of romance and chivalry, if an amethyst was presented by a lady to her knight, or a bride to her husband in the shape of a heart set in silver, it was said to confer the greatest possible earthly happiness on the pair who would be blessed with good fortune for the remainder of their lives.
