Amethyst | Brow/Third Eye and Throat Chakras
Different people experience different things with this crystal. These are simply MY experiences. Amethyst is mentally and intellectually stimulating; good for students! It promotes independence and allows you to think more clearly and rationally, while keeping you aware of your surroundings. Because of this, its an excellent stone to travel with. Even keep some in your car at all times. Amethyst also opens up your throat chakra, making it more easily for you to articulate your thoughts without fear of judgement. If you find romance/a lover distracting you from goals in life, amethyst is a good crystal to use to bring you back down to earth/balance your overactive heart chakra.
Unlike some crystals, don’t wear amethyst indefinitely. You can begin to feel irritable, and a bit too logical, finding it difficult to empathize with people or express yourself with tact. I’ve even experienced some anxiety that is alleviated as soon as I take mine off.
