More About Chevron Amethyst:
Chevron Amethyst is a banded combination of amethyst and milky quartz. The bands form a distinctive chevron, or triangular shape — sort of like an arrow pointing. This stone has all the properties of amethyst, plus a few special associations. It’s good for releasing fears and finding inner strength. One way to do this that’s especially suited to chevron amethyst is through lucid dreaming, which can help release fears that are the result of past-life trauma. This crystal is also associated with the eyes, and with visions of all types — whether they come through physical, spiritual or energetic fields. All of this makes chevron amethyst a great booster for spiritual growth & ascension.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz that ranges in color from the lightest lilac to a deep violet. It’s been considered a protective, healing stone from the earliest times. In fact, even its name refers to one of its ancient protective functions: a (anti-) + methustos (intoxicated). Wine taken from an amethyst cup, they said, would never make you drunk! (A possible mechanism for this: the host may have disguised the fact that he’d watered his wine by pouring it into a deep purple cup. It could work. . .) Amethyst has kept its association with virtue through time, protecting one’s better nature against temptation. In fact, the highest grade of amethyst is still known as “bishop’s grade.”
Metaphysical uses: Amethyst is associated with the two uppermost chakras, the third eye and crown chakras, and so makes a good meditation stone. It works well as a source of beads for malas and rosaries. But it’s also a very common stone, useful to anyone for its calming protection, easing the cycles of dreams and sleep. The related benefits, clarity in meditation and a good night’s sleep, can help fix the confusion and occasional case of the blahs that can be a side effect of the active–sometimes too active–Piscean imagination. I think of it as going with lavender; both amethyst and lavender calm body and mind, nurturing us into other states of consciousness.
One Way to Work With Chevron Amethyst:
To use chevron amethyst to help with lucid dreaming, hold a piece in your hands just before you go to bed. Decide whether there’s a specific issue you want your dreams to address, or whether you just want to explore inner worlds. Then state this intention, out loud if possible, and place the stone in or under your pillow. As you dream, the crystal will help remind you are dreaming with intention. After you wake up, write down any impressions or revelations that came to you in the dream state.
