Banded Amethyst Metaphysic, Banded Amethyst Gemstone from Madagascar

ANDED AMETHYST - AMETHYST, CHEVRON

Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek ἀ a- ("not") and μέθυστος methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness; the ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
 
Amethyst was used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in antiquity for intaglio engraved gems.
 
The Greeks believed amethyst gems could prevent intoxication,  while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle. The reason for this being that amethysts are believed to heal people and keep them cool-headed. Beads of amethyst were found in Anglo-Saxon graves in England.
 
A large geode, or "amethyst-grotto", from near Santa Cruz in southern Brazil was presented at the 1902 exhibition in D├╝sseldorf, Germany.
 
Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for February.

Chevron Amethyst (also called "Banded Amethyst") is a combination of Amethyst and White Quartz, mixed together in a V-striped or banded pattern. Chevron Amethyst combines the strengthening and enhancing qualities of Quartz with the stress relieving qualities of Amethyst. This symbiotic combination of minerals lends itself to a wonderfully spiritual stone, which is great for gently removing the veils that obscure some of the hidden meanings in life.

Chevron Amethyst is one of the best stones to work with the Third-Eye, enhancing both intuition and physical vision on all planes of existence. Use Chevron Amethyst to help remove resistance to change, and to dissipate and repel negativity of all kinds. Chevron Amethyst creates a strong healing field around the user, and as such, is a good choice to cleanse the aura and to enhance the immune system.

Crystal healers work with Chevron Amethyst for its psychic energies and for its ability to clear and strengthen the aura. Chevron Amethyst can amplify energies needed for manifestation and works well in grid work. Chevron Amethyst is also said to deepen the meditative state, enhancing the quality and frequency of visions and inspiration from higher realms.
