Amethyst is one of the ultimate stones for the third eye, making it a great mediation aid. Amethyst is very helpful in rising above the little negative details we can become caught up in at times, and helps us to step away and see the bigger picture. Amethyst is all about perspective, especially the larger mystical perspective beyond the mundane.
Amethyst has a folklore of both physical and psychic protection that goes back to ancient times. The Greek creation myth behind Amethyst also points to one of it's more modern attributions, that of moderation. Amethyst is said to be of special help to those seeking to overcome negative and self-sabotaging behavior patterns; it is said to be particularly helpful in overcoming addictions.

Amethyst is also beneficial to those who are in careers that focus on creativity as Amethyst is stimulating to the imagination as well. With Amethyst's focus on imagination, creativity, and mystical experience it is associated with the astrological sign Pisces.
