I have always had a fascination for precious stones. I can admire them for hours.

For me, gems represent nature's perfection. They have an infinite range of colours. 

Amethyst can be found in all shades of purple, from pale lilac to intense violet.

It has always been believed that stones must be worn directly on the skin to be beneficial to the wearer.

This stone harmonises love life. It would have the capacity to balance all its dimensions, whether emotional, intellectual or physical.

According to the legend, Saint Valentine always wore an amethyst. 

Stone of spirituality, it helps meditating and praying.  Bishops wear it as rings. Buddhist monks as rosaries.

Amethyst protects against negative forces. It also helps detoxifying and fighting against addictions. Its name literally means "chases drunkenness". Also believed to heal headaches, it dispels anguish, worry and anger. 

Placed under a pillow, it prevents nightmares and encourages full of precious information dreams. Amethyst suits sportspeople, students, businesspeople and extroverts.
