Ancient History of Amethystos
The historically prized gemstone has an extensive history and many references in the bible. Some Bishops still wear Amethyst rings, as purple is seen to symbolize the regality of Christ. Because of this and its popularity among the Ancient Egyptians, the stone was once considered one of the most valuable gemstones. It even used to rival the price of Diamonds. You can also find extremely valuable Amethysts among the British crown jewels. The month of love may have been assigned the rich purple birthstone because Saint Valentine was rumored to have worn an Amethyst ring with Cupid carved into it.
Spiritual Meanings of Amethyst
Amethysts natural benefits
Dr. Sharma explains in his book, Healing Power of Gems, why gemstones can have such an incredibly positive effect on human health. Humans are beings of light, which is known as our life force. Like humans, the Earth was also created with this life source of light. As the Earth continues to form, that same light is infused into the crystalline structure. Therefore natural gemstones very well possess the same essence that makes up our life force. It makes complete sense why we are so drawn to their natural beauty, including the ability to reflect and transmit natural light.
