Product #R-AMETH-Chevron - $1.50
Chevron Amethyst is very similar to Banded Amethyst, except that the lines of amplifying quartz are arranged into pointed bands. This causes the stone to take on a focusing aspect, evoking intense concentration and deep meditation within the user. Legend has it that chevron amethyst acts like a gateway, allowing one to "pierce" the fabric of time and space to look directly into other worlds. (Often used by Shamans to view the Spirit World.)
Traditional Uses: Wear in a pocket or pouch to carry properties with you. Sleep with stone(s) in pillow or headboard. Place stones on various parts of the body or chakras to improve their function. Make an elixir by soaking stone(s) for 24 hours in water--in sunlight, if "yang" or hot energies are needed in the body; moonlight, if "yin" or cool energies are needed in the body (drink as needed). Place stone(s) on an altar or in a spell's physical components to add particular qualities to magick.
History: Unusual stones have been used by most cultures throughout history for healing, protection, meditation, and spiritual awakening. Examples include Native American, Egyptian, Sumerian, and Druid cultures, plus modern Shamans, New Age practitioners, and spiritual healers. There is archaeological evidence that the earliest humans used unique stones and earth in spiritual or shamanic ceremonies.
