Have you ever heard of the ‘Empress of Uruguay’? At 2500 tons & about 11 ft. tall, she’s the largest amethyst geode (or any geode) we know of. She now belongs to collectors, René and Nelleke Boissevain who show her off in Queensland, Australia.

Now, “amethyst” comes the Greek word, “amethystos” which means “not drunk”. LOL! This goes all the way back dating back to an ancient tale involving Bacchus, the god of wine.

So what else does amethyst do for us? Well for most it enhances intuition and psychic abilities while allowing us to make a deeper spiritual connection. Its also a very calming stone, relieves headaches, protects us, lulls us to sleep and aids in getting rid of addictions. Who wouldn’t want a big chunk of this around?
What’s your experience with amethyst? Take it, leave it or LOVE it?!
