Amethyst - use this lovely purple gem stone to stay sober

colored purple gem stone healing properties Amethyst is an enchanting purple gem stone that has been adored by royalty throughout history, all the way back to 3000 B.C. in Egypt. Yet despite its royal pedigree, it's surpringly inexpensive.

Amethyst is thought to stimulate right-brain activity and psychic intuition. It also has healing properties, removing impurities from the bloodstream, strengthening immunity and relieving headaches. The ancient Greeks believed that amethyst prevented drunkenness. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word amethystos, meaning "not drunken", or "sober". Drinking wine from an amethyst recepticle was thought to allow you to drink alcohol without fear of intoxication. I could have used an amethyst glass on my last birthday!

In Greek folklore, the god of wine, Bacchus, was angry at mortal human beings and decided to send his tigers to attack the next mortal to pass by. A young woman named Amethyst crossed his path, but before Bacchus's Tigers could attack, Goddess Diana intervened, turning Amethyst into a mound of purple quartz in order to protect her. Bacchus later felt ashamed of his aggression, and cried tears of wine over Amethyst, turning her quartz body into the purple stone it is today.

While I don't believe that story literally, I do believe that amethyst purifies the bloodstream, a factor in preventing drunkenness. It also increases your intution, perhaps bringing your mind of its drunken stupor and allowing you to discern what's happening around you.

I know you all take good care of your temples, but in the event that you do consume alcohol, consider wearing a piece of amethyst to preserve your mental edge. But don't rely on it to drive!

Emeralds - the preservers of love and removers of heartache

"Emerald green" is a ubiquitous color because it is reflective of the most beautiful rare green gem stone, the emerald. Its color is so intense that the name "emerald green" stirs up images of the world's most beautiful tropical waters. In fact, the name "emerald" originally comes from the Sanskrit word marakata, meaning "green".

The finest emeralds come from Columbia, but fine emeralds are also found in Zambia, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and Russia. Emeralds have also been found in North Carolina and in Yukon, Canada. Synthetic emeralds are also produced.

The emerald is associated with the goddess Venus, and is said to preserve love. If you are concerned about your partner remaining faithful, giving him or her an emerald is said to prevent indiscretions. In some cultures emeralds were said to be stones that enable prophecy, while in other cultures they were said to bring reason adn wisdom to their bearer (and perhaps those are the qualities that enable prophecy). The emerald's mystical power is said to be strongest in the Spring.

Emeralds are said to have healing properties for the physical heart as well as the emotional heart. Indeed, emotional stress takes its toll on the physical body, but emeralds relieve that stress, allowing healing to occur.

If you are living with the fear of losing your partner's affection, and with the accompanying stress, the deep and vivid healing green of the emerald may soothe your heartache while it works to preserve your love.
