Red Amethyst combines the energy of the Amethyst and the rich red energy rays of Hematite.
Amethyst is a well known healer that has profound effects in balancing the crown chakra. If you are feeling out of sorts, blocked, and mentally clumsy, try a short session with an amethyst, you will likely find yourself refreshed, alert, and back in control. Also, Amethyst is the traditional birthstone of those born in February, and it is the stone of Thursday, "Thor's Stone".
The Red Amethyst with its addition of Hematite, is producing a crystal cluster that brings the amethyst the additional energy of courage, tenacity, inner strength, romance, and passion.
The Red Amethyst is also being found to be more effective in balancing the Base Chakra than the Crown Chakra. More work is needed here. Finally, we are finding this is a stone for the Gemini born. This Red Amethyst seems to be a stone useful for repairing damage from wounds to someone's sense of worth. If you are recovering from a damaged relationship, this is the strength you need.
