Hello, I just joined this forum because I've recently been getting into crystal healing. I stumbled upon this discussion on amethyst, and would like to share my experiences with this gorgeous crystal. The first time amethyst found its way into my posession was when I was in second grade and my parents could not make my first musical concert. Trying to console me, they bought me a beautiful pendant with two roses painted on a white stone and a small amethyst accent. (My birthstone is garnet, so I had no idea why they would get me amethyst) The second amethyst in my possesion was a lovely geode half with many amethyst crystals that was the size of my palm. I got it after visiting a cave, in the gift shop. I was too young to really care what it was, I just thought it was pretty. I loved it and displayed it in my room. (I'm not sure where it is now... I had it years ago and moved a lot since then) The third time I must have picked out a double terminated amethyst crystal on a string...from somewhere. You see, I don't quite remember where I got it, when I got it, why, or even how... But I somehow found it in my jewelry box like it decided to make its way there just as I began to explore crystals.
Amethyst seems to follow me I suppose... And purple has nearly always been my favourite colour. Well, just thought I would share my experiences.
