The name Amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek work amethustos, meaning sober. It was said that an amethyst could prevent the bearer from becoming excessively drunk and also instills a sober and serious mind. In Greek mythology, amethyst was a rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry.
Amethyst is associated with the crown and third-eye chakra. It is even said to bridge the gap between the physical and the spiritual realms. The stone helps facilitate conscious connection with Spirit Guides, angels, and source. It can clear one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments, and can thereby facilitate the creation of an energetic shield. It brings inner peace, helps with grief, and awakens awareness.
Agate is a rock consisting primarily of cryptocrystalline silica, chiefly chalcedony, alternating with microgranular quartz. Agate is characterized by its fineness of grain and variety of color. Agate is a 6.5-7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Although agates may be found in various kinds of host rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks. Metaphysically, it is believed that Agate enhances mental function, improves concentration, enhances perception, and analytical abilities.
A geode is a round rock which contains a hollow cavity lined with crystals and is rated between 6.5 and 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. What is so special about Geodes? These rocks are completely filled with small compact crystal formations such as agate, jasper or chalcedony that are called nodules. The only difference between a geode and a nodule is that a geode has a hollow cavity, and a nodule is solid. Geodes are metaphysically believed to be powerful crystals for good luck, spiritual growth, and are often utilized in meditation.
