Amethyst is a key gem in Western magical traditions. It was prized by the Greeks who believed it prevented intoxication. Some associate amethyst with the element of fire while others have attributed it to water. These divergent attributions hint at the wide variety of uses to which amethyst has been put, from protection against evil and theft to preventing insomnia and nightmares and engendering a sense of peace and well being. Whatever their attributions and properties, the beauty of these raw crystals cannot be denied.
