This bracelet is made up of a string of beautiful amethyst mala beads. The beads that go into each bracelet are carefully selected to be as consistent as possible in outlook and hue.
Note however that amethyst is a natural semi-precious stone, and it is normal for each of these beads to contain small dissimilarities.
Amethyst is a semiprecious stone. It is a form of quartz, and is easily recognizable with its beautiful purple hue.
The name "Amethyst" can be traced to the ancient Greeks. It derives from the work "amethusthos", which means "not intoxicated". It is believed to instil a sense of calm and promote cool-headedness.
This very property of it is what makes it prized today for spirituality and contentment. The serenity it promotes can help with meditation practice.
Amethyst is often associated with the "crown chakra", i.e. the Sahasrara Chakra. The Sahasrara Chakra is one of the seven primary Chakras. It relates to pure consciousness, and is the root Chakra from which the other Chakras emanate. Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding, and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
