Amethyst is the "Good For Everything" crystal. It has a strong rebalancing and restorative energy, making it a great choice for those suffering from high stress or anxiety. It is a great bedtime stone and should be kept on the nightstand of someone who suffers from overly vivid dreams or nightmares, to the point where it is hurting their sleep quality. If you're interested in lucid dreaming, keeping Amethyst by your head at night will help. All these aspects transfer over to meditation as well, and meditating with a piece of Amethyst is great for opening up all your inner channels to receive messages from your guides and past loved ones. It can be a major catalyst stone for the spiritual newbie. It is also highly protective, erecting a force field of physical and spiritual protection around you. If you're feeling imbalanced in any area, reach for Amethyst. Keeping it in a highly visible area in your home casts waves of calm on whoever looks at it.

Important note: this crystal's oldest trait is sobriety. It used to be given to those with addictive personalities to help alleviate drunkenness, addictions to drugs or bad habits, and even poor behaviour. It's a great gift for someone attempting to overcome a great obstacle.
