Magical Properties of Amethyst
Each crystal of every type has a particular sort of energy. The vibration has an effect on the mind and body, resulting in transformation of spiritual and physical health. Crystals can be used in a number of different ways, but the underlying premise of each of these philosophies is that if you come into contact with your crystal on a regular basis, it will benefit you.
How can Amethyst help you? 1. Amethyst and your body can exchange energy with one another. Amethyst quartz is capable of increasing the size of your bio-magnetic field by 100% within seconds of standing in its presence. This can replenish lost energy eroded by depression.

3. Amethyst generates negative Ions. Negative Ions are free electrons or any simple molecule with a net negative charge. Ions are broken molecules with special electrical properties.

For this reason, negative ions are able to draw other particles if they are found in large enough concentrations. Thus negative ion emission can draw bad particle and free radicals out of your body. Amethyst crystals emit negative ions and can bring about the benefits of negative ion emission. Here are three major benefits of negative ions:
- Removing Toxic Particles from the Body.
- Enhancing Respiration.
- Removing Aerosol.
