Found in tombs of the Ancient Egyptians to the crown jewels of Queen Elizabeth II, Amethyst is one of the most well known and holy crystals. It is the February birthstone, the Chinese year of the Dragon, and the 6th Anniversary gift. Working with the third eye and crown chakras it opens you to lucid dreaming and better dream recall. Leave this piece on your nightstand to calm the mind and avoid nightmares.
Using Amethyst for blockages is very helpful. Signs of a blocked Third Eye Chakra include feeling nervousness, anxiety, even depression. Combined with headaches and dizziness a blocked Crown Chakra can manifest itself in the form of being very tired and feelings of emotional isolation. You can bring Amethyst to the Third Eye and Crown while meditating to move through what blocks you.
