A large number of miraculous powers are attributed to the amethyst in all sorts of cultures.

    And I would say you are quite fond of purple, just a hunch 😉
    I do love amethysts, the colour is just so beautiful! A friend of mine claimed to use it against migraines with succes. I tried it and never had a migraine since, but of course I have no idea if that’s because of the stone 😉

      I do love purple indeed, though for clothes I wear mostly black.

      When that is true about the amethist I will make myself a new pendant to wear everyday.
      I have lots of headaches lately, almost every day.
