The Healing Gemstone

The Healing Gemstone

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistAmethyst, the birthstone for February, is associated with passion as well as healing. Symbolizing light energy, quartz crystal is one of the most sacred stones of ancient cultures. In particular, the purple crystalline quartz known as amethyst has long been used by healers to focus energy. As part of their stock in trade, healers often wear several pieces of jewelry (most notably necklaces) with amethysts set in silver. While the person in need of healing holds an amethyst, the healer places another amethyst on the area of the body in need of healing. This beautiful purple gemstone is most often used the healing gemstone to treat respiratory problems. Amethysts are also used to focus sunlight in the home to promote cleanliness and positivity. The deep purple color of amethyst has been known for centuries as the color of royalty and is even part of the British Crown Jewels.See our outstanding selection of beautiful offerings at 1402 Hancock Street, Quincy Center.
