Amethyst is a violet-purple gemstone in the quartz family that is the birthstone for February and has been used by several cultures since ancient times. Read on to learn about the benefits of wearing amethyst and other belief systems around the world today.

The Gemstone of Sobriety

In ancient Greece and Rome, amethyst stone jewelry was thought to protect the wearer against drunkenness and was even carved into purpose-made drinking vessels! In fact, the word “amethyst” itself comes from the Greek a = “not” + methustos = “intoxicated.”

Today, amethyst is worn for protection against negativity, calamities, natural disasters, and psychic attacks — though if you want to use an amethyst zodiac wine glass, we say go right ahead!

Amethyst’s Benefits in Astrology

The millennia-long Indian Vedic system of astrology links the amethyst gemstone to the wicked planet Saturn and the zodiac constellations of Capricorn and Aquarius. You might have amethyst as your astrological gemstone if you were born between December 23 and February 18 (Tropical calendar) or between February 15 and April 14 (Sidereal calendar).

For either of these star signs (or anyone who simply wants to wear an amethyst gemstone), the gem is thought to bring rapid improvements to the wearer’s financial situation and help them enjoy greater success in their romantic relationships. For those on a budget or who find some gems overpowering, amethyst zodiac is also recommended as a more affordable substitute for blue sapphire.

The Amethyst Gemstone and the Hindu Chakras

Hindu tradition associates gemstones with one or more of the seven chakras or power centers of the body to explain the effects that they can have on the mind, body, and soul. In this tradition, the amethyst gemstone is thought to have an effect on the crown or transcendental chakra, which is associated with spirituality, and the third-eye chakra, which is located between the eyebrows and is associated with the mind and intuition.

These associations are congruent with using amethyst zodiac as a tool to strengthen one’s spirituality, intuitive power, and even a way to open up channels to past lives and communicating with the deceased.
