Amethyst Gemstone: Properties, Benefits, Healing powers, and How to wear it for deriving optimum benefits
Amethyst is a semi-precious stone in today’s classifications, but to the ancients, it was a “Gem of Fire,” a Precious Stone worth as much as a Diamond. It was called so, because of its prevailing powers to stimulate the restless emotions.
Amethyst is a violet hued gemstone associated with the quartz family. It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity and spirituality, yet displays temperance and sobriety. It offers protection to its wearers from all sorts of intoxication. The word Amethyst is derived out of two words ‘A’ signifying ‘Not’ and ‘Methystos’ illustrating intoxicated. Thus, on conjugating both the words derives ‘Not Drunk’. Amethyst gemstone helps to balance the anxious and restless emotions of the wearer. Since Amethyst is a symbol of transmutation, it also indicates an alchemical process encompassing the physical, emotional and spiritual nature.
In today’s world, Amethyst is still considered to be a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment. It is known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. The inherent frequency of Amethyst gemstone purifies the ambiance and aura from all negative energies and attachments thus, creating a protective shield of light around the body.

Wearing Amethyst Gemstone with Rudraksha:
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Amethyst gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance and energize Chakras. In RRST we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life. It is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. In RRST, setting a gemstone in a ring or in a pendant is done by placing the bhasm made of the planetary herb inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects in another tube. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus, the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
During consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and the limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity while facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. It is only after blocked Chakras are balanced and activated that you can transform your life sufferings, obstacles and confusions into love, success and happiness. As per the Chakra status and concerns of a client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. Gemstones work on specific Chakras, as per the cosmic color and frequencies they emit.
Amethyst influences Sahasrara Chakra (Crown Chakra) and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the gemstone. Rudraksha and Gemstones are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energies stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural abundant state.
Sahasrara Chakra is the seat of “Light”; it signifies and governs our highest self and the door to the unconscious and subconscious. This Chakra links us to the divine Sea of Light / the Kingdom of Light, out of which everything has emanated. This Chakra is positioned directly to pursue a devoted relationship with the Divine. It is the power of prayer, the intent. It is also our “grace bank account,” the warehouse for the energy we amass through kind thoughts, actions and acts of faith & prayer. It helps us to attain internal awareness through prayers and meditation. This Chakra represents our connection to the Supreme dimension of life. It is the primary route for liberation. Once this Sahasrara Chakra is realized, rebirth in the world of illusions is no longer necessary.
When this Sahasrara Chakra is blocked/ imbalanced, people do not see the meaning of life, nor do they believe in the existence of the Divine. They feel no connection or guidance from a higher power and feel unworthy of spiritual help and abandoned by the Divine. One tends to suffer from migraine, tension, headaches etc.
A balanced Sahasrara Chakra makes you feel connected to a higher power. You feel the immense gratitude for the universal love and appreciation.
Hence proper functioning of all the Chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus, Chakra cleansing and balancing is essential to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance and wellbeing in every spheres of life. The purpose of Sahasrara Chakra is to attain self-knowledge and realize contentment and gratitude from within.

Dear Neeta, Thank you for the mala and the emerald which arrived a few days ago. It all looks very good. Very nice handywork. Also thank you for the cassette. The rendering of the Mrityunjaya mantra is really very wonderful. Sincerely and with the best wishes Ketil Helmersberg
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. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t
Hi Neetaji, Dhramadevji I collected my fedex package from the jewel osco near my home. I really appreciate the excellent customer service you have at Rudra Center. 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. The bags + the japa mala bag were really great. I have done pooja and have started wearing my mala as well as doing ganesh japa with my custom rosary. pranaam Desikan
