Green Amethyst Crystals are known as Prasiolite. They are green quartz crystals.
Prasiolite can also be spelled Praseolite, but this is less common.
Green Amethyst Meaning
Most green amethyst crystals will have been a purple colour at some point in their lifetime. This is due to green amethysts occurring from a heat transfer.
Most natural green amethysts were a purple amethyst, which were then heated by either volcanic activity or the natural heating of the earth’s core. It is possible to create manmade green coloured amethysts by heat treatment. It is important that you keep these gemstones away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight as this can easily affect the colour of the stones.
The green amethyst quartz meaning is in some ways similar to that of the purple amethyst, although the properties of the two stones are quite different. A green amethyst contains the majority of the healing benefits of a purple amethyst plus some additional traits. Both green and purple amethysts will help to guard the owner against drunkenness and assist overcoming addictive personality disorders. Both coloured gemstones are also great guarders against negativity in life. This negativity can come from oneself or from other surrounding negative energies.
The green amethyst crystals, in particular, are known to open the crown chakra and the third eye chakra. By linking your heart to these chakras, you can increase your sense of love and empathy towards other people. Green amethysts increase your sense of compassion and self love. They can also help with challenging relationships by bringing a sense of calm to those involved.
Green amethysts are very spiritual stones, which help bridge the gap between the physical and the spiritual world. These stones encourage the wearer to become more in tune with nature and to look inwards for self-discovery.
Using Green Amethyst Crystals
As green amethyst is part of the quartz crystal family, it is able to magnify energy. It is especially good for using in meditation along side other crystals. Wearing green amethyst pendants is possibly the most powerful option as it means the crystal is kept very close to the heart. Green amethysts stimulate psychic growth within the wearer and allows connection with those on another plane of existence. For extra clairvoyant abilities, try combining your green amethyst with a turquoise stone.
Using green amethyst can bring prosperity to your life. They are known as the stones of good fortune and luck. This attribute probably stems down from these stones having an effect on the owner and their intuition.
Green amethysts not only help with balancing chakras but also with balancing emotions. These stones help you strengthen your emotions, your willpower and can also help overcome physical pain throughout your body.
