For February, Amethyst is the primary stone. Other stones that resonate with Pisces include Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Labradorite, and Fluorite. The Planetary stone for Pisces is Aquamarine and The Talismanic Stone is Ruby. Today, however, we’re going to focus on the Amethyst.
Amethysts are lovely stones that are connected with the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. They come in all shades of purple, violet, and mauve, and are one of the most useful and powerful stones around. Because of their color, amethysts are associated with Bacchus, and in Greece, drinking vessels were carved from amethyst.
Amethysts have a hardness value of 7, and they don’t break due to cleavage - cleavage means the stone tends to split along the planes of the stone. Since Amethysts grow so slowly, variations in color are a result of what’s called zoning which is caused by changes in the water in which they grow.
When this happens, the amount of iron in the water changes as well, and this causes the crystal to have different zones of color. The pattern of the amethyst in the picture below is called chevrons because of the shape of their pattern, but this is also an example of zoning.
Amethyst is all about the mind. As mentioned earlier, they are associated with the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and are the perfect stones for anything spiritual or psychic. They can enhance psychic ability and spirituality through connections with the universe. Used to open paths within the psyche for more growth.
Amethyst can also help in several additional ways.
Amethyst has been one of the most popular stones in the world for thousands of years. Cleopatra is said to have worn an amethyst ring, and in Rome, it was thought to guarantee fidelity. Today, we have numerous options for using and wearing our amethyst.
When meditating, hold an amethyst in each hand, or use a mala, to enhance your connection to the universe/ether, etc. You can also place Amethyst on any area of the body that needs healing to enhance that connection.
