    Tips for Choosing

    Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.

    Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.

    Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

    Amethyst helps you attain wisdom by reminding every aspect of your being of its inherent spiritual nature. Amethyst is the gemstone bearer of the purple ray. It can help you let go of all that is old and all that holds you back—on every level and in every aspect of life—so that you may fully embrace your spiritual destiny.

    When you wear a necklace of Amethyst spheres, it forms a column of energy that extends from your physical body through all your inner bodies to Soul itself. This column allows Amethyst energy to rise upward from your heart to your head and beyond, into the innermost, spiritual aspect of your being, bringing your attention with it. In the process, Amethyst draws your attention through your inner bodies, increasing your awareness and knowledge of them. Then, Amethyst and the purple ray bring this wisdom back into clear, conscious thought. The longer you wear Amethyst, the stronger and wider this column of energy becomes.

    Amethyst’s purple ray reflects the highest aspect of the mind, which is also known as the intuition. It stirs the intuition. This stirring helps your mind become aware of its own intuitive aspect and, ideally, of that which lies just beyond it—soul itself. When your mind becomes aware of its highest aspect, the energy that the mind once fed its undesirable tendencies is redirected. If Amethyst is worn long enough, these undesirable tendencies will begin to dissolve.

    Amethyst can also help you understand and let go of anything that keeps you attached to a condition. When worn as a necklace of spheres, Amethyst affects all your subtle bodies, bringing the perspective needed to let go of attachments.

    Amethyst promotes both inner and outer focus. By focusing your attention on a higher, more spiritual state, Amethyst keeps you from falling prey to the many distractions that impede spiritual growth. As it helps dissolve the duality between inner and outer experience, Amethyst helps you see that all of life is spiritual.

    Amethyst urges you on all levels to look beyond yourself to the level of pure spirit and the true self. Within Amethyst’s blueprint is a memory of pure Spirit, where matter, energy, space, and time do not exist, and where there is no duality. This memory also lies in your cells' blueprints. When you wear Amethyst, its blueprint resonates with those of your cells. The memory of your cells’ optimal state is awakened, and the call of soul to return to this higher awareness is rekindled.

    When you wear Amethyst in a necklace that lies near your heart chakra, its energy first connects with your emotions. It stimulates the area where emotions are born and uplifts the area's consciousness. This upliftment fosters a higher perspective on your emotions and helps reduce or balance emotional extremes. The balancing effect on the emotions is cumulative. Therefore, if you are easily imbalanced by others, you should wear Amethyst continually to cultivate this balance and allow it to grow.

    When an Amethyst necklace falls near the throat, the purple ray tends to flow directly to the head and mind, bypassing the emotions and increasing the amount of energy flowing in through the throat chakra. This gives energy to the voice. Therefore, if you must address a group but are afraid to speak, you will benefit from wearing Amethyst around your neck near your throat. Wearing such a necklace will also benefit those who lack the self-confidence to express themselves or who speak too quietly or with uncertainty.

    Amethyst should never be worn in a necklace that reaches much below the heart chakra. Necklaces of Amethyst that are too long will start to draw energy from the rest of the body to the stomach area, thus diffusing the necklace's focus and creating confusion.

    Amethyst and the Nervous System

    Each of the seven color rays of the life force is particularly healing and nourishing to certain aspects of the physical body. The purple ray nourishes and supports the body’s communication system, including the nerve cells and brain. Consequently, wearing Amethyst can help strengthen these parts of the body and help resolve certain conditions associated with them.

    Amethyst and Gold

    Those who love to wear gold can wear it freely with Amethyst. Not only will the two look beautiful together, but the Amethyst will provide an understanding and supportive influence by helping lovers of gold understand why they may cling to certain attitudes, feelings, or conditions. This understanding is important, because it will form the basis for lovers of gold to take further steps in their evolution.

    Precious Amethyst

    The Earth, always full of surprises, has blessed us with one of her very best. For the first time ever, Gemisphere’s pharmacy welcomes necklaces of precious Amethyst rondels. Precious Amethyst is an exceptionally pure and potent vehicle for Amethyst energy and the purple ray.

    These virtually flawless, deep-violet gems are extremely rare and increasingly scarce. We at Gemisphere are both delighted and honored to be the planet’s only source of them in rondel form. In fact, it is to make this rare find as affordable and available as possible that we are offering these gems as rondels rather than spheres. The rondel shape preserves as much of the crystal as possible while transforming the crystals into potent healing tools. We have literally never seen Amethyst of this quality and pure violet color since Gemisphere’s founding.

    Amethyst color occurs naturally in a wide range from light to dark purple. Therapeutic Amethyst falls somewhere in the middle of this range and resembles the vibrant purple seen in a rainbow. As Amethyst moves away from this optimal color and becomes darker or lighter, its therapeutic value diminishes. The lightest purple is not the gemstone known as Lavender but only a washed-out Amethyst.

    Clarity also plays a key role in Amethyst quality. Flaws and inclusions, or foreign matter, detract from its ability to radiate its healing energy. A tiny amount of flaws in a sphere is acceptable. However, when evaluating Amethyst, be aware that flaws disrupt or block the sphere’s ability to radiate its energy in direct proportion to the flaws’ size. The exceptions are minor flaws that have a prismatic effect. When a sphere with these flaws is moved in natural light, the Amethyst displays a rainbow or partial rainbow of colors. This property is an asset. All other flaws and inclusions—especially cloudiness, dark flecks, internal fractures, or pieces of the rock matrix in which the Amethyst grew—inhibit the Amethyst's energy and should be avoided. Poor drill holes or any damage to the sphere’s surface, such as scratches, gouges, or chipped areas, also render Amethyst non-therapeutic.

    To judge Amethyst quality accurately requires experience and the opportunity to compare many Amethyst specimens of different grades and colors. Amethyst of ideal color with no inclusions is extremely rare.

    Since wearing my Amethyst necklace, I’ve found that my sleep is much more relaxed and restful. Even my dreams have changed for the better. I’ve also noticed that things I used to worry and fret about don’t seem to faze me as much. My conversations with people are more straightforward, too. I feel more confident to say what I really feel.

    E.B., Dallas, Texas

    Amethyst allowed me to go much further than I could on my own in healing a traumatized area. This area had felt isolated for many years following major surgery. The Amethyst Body-Awakening Technique appealed to me, and so I did my first placement therapy on the area. All discomfort left quickly, and I felt a wonderful sense of connection.

    That night I dreamt of the area for the first time ever. I felt the same wonderful sensation of the Amethyst energy that I had felt during the therapy. Amethyst allowed me to bring to full consciousness all that was involved so that I could easily move past it.

    Wear It Around Your Neck

    One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use an Amethyst necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems. 

    Amethyst should never be worn in a necklace that reaches much below the heart chakra. Necklaces of Amethyst that are too long will start to draw energy from the rest of the body to the stomach area, thus diffusing the necklace's focus and creating confusion.

    Focused Treatments

    Amethyst can also be used for more focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place it on a specific area of your body to focus its healing energies there. For example, you can curl up the necklace and place it on an ailing, injured, or painful area to accelerate the area’s recovery.

    An Amethyst necklace can be placed on any of six major chakras to treat a variety of conditions or to promote awareness. Amethyst energy affects each chakra differently. The following therapies offer ways to derive benefits from Amethyst chakra treatments:

    Sacral Chakra Therapy - Prenatal

    This technique uplifts the unborn child. It helps forge a stronger connection between the fetus and the Soul that will enter the baby's body. When the baby is born, this enhanced connection will cause the Soul to enter the body with greater vitality.

    Stomach Chakra Therapy - Stomach Ache

    The Amethyst vibrations draw to the stomach healing energies from other, stronger areas of the body. This therapy is very helpful for soothing stomachaches, especially in children. 

    Heart Chakra Therapy - Insight into Attachments

    This technique can bring you insight and enhance your understanding of the reasons you are attached to certain conditions or situations in your life. 

    Throat Chakra Therapy - Public Speaking and Other Speech Support

    The Amethyst energy flowing through your throat chakra opens passageways for more life energy to enter your throat. This strengthens your throat chakra and makes additional energy available to your voice. 

    Brow Chakra Therapy - Spiritual Development Technique

    This technique opens your brow chakra and strengthens the circuit of energy that continually flows in through your throat and out your brow. When this flow is strengthened, you become more aware of your inner aspects, which in turn spurs your spiritual unfoldment. 

    Brow and Crown Chakra Therapy - Headache

    If your headache is caused by a build-up of excess energy in your head, this therapy will open your brow and crown chakras and allow your head to discharge its excess energy. 

    Crown Chakra Therapy - Mental Imbalance Therapy

    Stagnant mental energy is a common cause of mental imbalances. This therapy helps release stagnant mental energies by opening your brow chakra and encouraging a flow of energy in through your throat and out through your brow. As long as your brow remains open, energy will not be able to collect in your mind and stagnate there.

    Body Awakening Technique

    Amethyst is used to help draw the body's healing energies to an ailing area that has previously been ignored. An Amethyst necklace is placed on the area to awaken the body and inner aspects to the area's condition and thereby facilitate its healing. 

    Pattern-Loosening Technique

    Amethyst is used in conjunction with creative visualization to loosen the energetic knots and patterns that bind difficult circumstances to one's life. 

    Time Guidelines

    Amethyst can be worn continuously. However, it is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.

    Cleanse Amethyst Regularly

    To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Amethyst necklace. Learn more about these methods.

    Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.

    Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight.

    Water Rinse: Rinse the gems in alternating warm and cold water 2 – 3 times a week.

    Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay in sunlight for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time.

    Clay Cleanse: For deeper cleansing, occasionally perform a bentonite clay bath or pack.

    When Your Necklace First Arrives

    When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
