Healing Properties: Amethyst is a powerful, protective and healing stone. It is one of the most effective crystals for healing people as it counteracts negative energies. Powerfully protective, wearing amethyst shields against psychic attack or ill-wishing. It recycles this heavy abrasive energy back to the Universe to be changed into positive, loving energy. It works hard to relieve obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, and negative thinking/programming. Amethyst healing properties also include acting as a natural form of stress relief by ridding your body of any negative emotions—feelings of stress, anxiety, fear, depression and more.
