That is where the use of Amethyst Gemstone offers shade in the sun.

  2. Curing insomnia
    Apart from being remedial in family, affection and healthy relationships, amethyst gems produce far-infrared radiation that is a type of wavelength having a host of health benefits for humans. And, sound sleep being one of them. Several investigation and experimentation have ascertained a set theory that assures in one possible thing, which is sound sleep. Sleep patterns get regulated under the influence of far-infrared. Since, amethyst gemstones discharge a specific wavelength that in turn emits tranquility within the body of the wearer. Thus, turning one’s distressed sleep to sound.

  3. Cleansing blood vessels
    Blood vessels are no doubt unseen to all; however, we all cannot live without its existence in our body. Of course, the way our house needs to be cleansed, so is the case with our blood vessels that needs some cleaning. But, it is not as easy as taking a bath and that is why almighty has created such a precious stone to purify it. Blood circulation is possible only when the vessels that carry are healthy and clean. And, with the help of far-infrared radiation by the amethyst gemstones assures one of good blood flow within the vessels.

  4. Body Cell Regeneration
    Cells are the vital players in one’s health system. But, once degeneration happens it takes a while to recover it easily. A majority of people deal with a range of health issues. These are directly connected to one single source that is degeneration of body cells. There are a plethora of studies going on, and researchers have come to a point stating that the radiation emitted by the amethyst gemstone surely overcomes degeneration and helps in regeneration of new cells. This in turn stimulates new cell growth making a healthy living possible.

  5. Increasing resilience in healing wounds
    We all have experienced cuts, bruises and burns at one point of time. However, once this dreaded thing happens, it definitely takes a good amount of time to get healed. For sure, these are trivial concerns for a healthy person, but for the ones who are suffering from diabetes or some other disease that decreases good amount of healing period drastically. Of course, then the cuts would take a month to get healed and if something goes incorrect in the process of healing, it might take a while more to get healed. No doubt, this sounds creepy to hear but there are people who daily live with such dreads. Amethyst gems have proven to be a cure to most of the diseases known to all and assists body to regenerate new cells and this makes body to cure and heal the wounds more quick than at a regular pace.

    Finally, it acts as a catalyst in surmounting inappropriate bacteria for a human body. We all deal with bacteria day in and day out, but our body has certain resistance power that assures one thing that no unfitting bacteria harms us, even though they enter with a percept to do so. But, with lower immune system things never remain the same and one fine day or rather bad day things turn haywire. Amethyst gemstone binds our source of good bacteria to resist the unfitting one, and helps us be hale and hearty.

  • It was like the heavens finally decided I had enough austerities

    Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give.

I really like my mala (done in silver). My sister's mala looks awesome as well (sphatik + emerald+rudrakhsa). I was really impressed with the packaging that you had done.
