Amethyst is arguably one of the most popular and well known crystals, and for good reason! Most people know Amethyst for its wonderful ability to help insomnia and ease stress and anxiety but Amethyst does much more than help you get your beauty sleep. This stone increases your spiritual awareness and psychic abilities, while also allowing you to experience deeper meditation and a higher state of consciousness. These purple beauties are also great for cleansing the aura of negative energies or entities and encapsulating the body in a protective bubble of pure, white light. Amethyst is also known for being a wonderful stone to help and comfort those grieving the loss of a loved one.
