The Amethyst has protection and enhancing properties. It is also the February birthstone as a fun little note. I am more drawn to this stone because of my birth month but it is also because I am drawn to stones that gives a form of protection. You can find more information but that is the basics.

At one time Amethyst was thought to prevent drunkeness! In ancient times, before modern mining techniques and the discovery of the huge deposits in Zambia and Brazil, Amethyst was more valuable than diamonds! Almost every culture, from ancient Egypt to modern Europe, has valued Amethyst as jewellery. It is a wonderful crystal compound; and is best in its natural state. I have some large lumps of it. Hold it in your hand, and the heat causes it to "vibrate". You can actually feel it! Maybe not so much as pure Citrine, but it does vibrate.
All forms of quartz vibrate, it's why crystals have been such a long lived staple of the occult communities of history. It is a perfect conductor of energies, and depending on the formation, has it's own innate properties of transmutation. Amethyst in particular, is very closely aligned with the frequencies of the brow chakra and work well for opening that area.
It's also an excellent stone for dispelling negative thoughts and energies, and turning them into positive and productive vibrations that are wholesome rather than harmful to the practitioner or environment.
If you're interested in learning more, I'd suggest taking some time to google search the spiritual and metaphysical properties of crystals and crystalline formations. There's a lot of information out there that may prove beneficial for you in terms of learning basic ways to tap into universal energies using crystals as a conductor.
