Chevron Amethyst is a combination of Amethyst and White Quartz, mixed together in a V-striped or banded pattern. Chevron Amethyst combines the strengthening and enhancing qualities of Quartz with the stress relieving qualities of Amethyst.
This symbiotic combination of minerals lends itself to a wonderfully spiritual stone, which is great for gently removing the veils that obscure some of the hidden meanings in life.
The name Amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken”. But before you write this one off as “not for you off due to your Friday night Pinot habit”, you should note that this potentially odd name comes from that time when angry Greek God Bacchus poured one out for his fallen homie, turning a clear crystal purple with the sweet nectar of the gods. Those ancient philosophers could have been onto something with the belief that it could spare you from public drunkenness. Maybe it’s time Amethyst replaced a penis straw as the Hen’s Night must have…
Ancient angry gods and public intoxication notwithstanding, the February birthstone’s healing properties are plentiful. Its purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts and releasing addictive behaviours. It’s also helpful in making a clear connection between planes, making it excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience and clairvoyance and communication with angels.
Amethyst is said to aid creative thinking and spiritual awareness. It is also a protective stone and thought to reduce nightmares. So, rather than watching “one more episode” on Netflix next time insomnia stripes, try placing amethyst stones underneath your pillow before you go to bed and give into the peace and calm this stunning stone can bring.
Using this Pantone Colour of the Year (2018) hued stone to decorate the home is a choice many make for its good looks alone. Aside from the fact that an amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding and in the office can bring intuition for making tough decisions and assist in stress-relief for long working days, its uplifting energy can really help tie a room together.
Quartz one of the earth’s most abundant minerals and it is often referred to as the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses.
While the Quartz properties are many and varied, giving it a reputation as a master healer, it is especially helpful for helping control how we think about and perceive situations. Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to a more enlightened point of view. It can help expand consciousness and facilitate open communication. For those needing clarity of mind, the healing properties of quartz will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.
Many (serious science people – not just jingly sandal wearing Byron hippies) believe that the similarity in cellular composition of Quartz with the human body and earth’s crust accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like Quartz and the human body.
This is no joke – Marcel Vogel, a scientist at IBM, has studied the connection between human and emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believes that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition.
And it turns out that programming your Quartz is way f*cking easier than trying to program your Smart TV to record on iView. To program the Quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand and focus on what you want to achieve. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in tech devices (or in this case, in a much easier way than it does in your supposedly Smart TV).
