This crystal combines the healing powers of quartz with the calming, intuitive properties of amethyst. Also called Cape Amethyst or Banded Amethyst, this stone encourages relaxation and peace of mind. Chevron amethyst is said to bring out our courage and inner strength and therefore, helping us to initiate our own journey of self-discovery. Known to decrease our own sabotaging resistance and assist in the consciousness of our own self-awareness. Chevron amethyst is associated with the Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra, stimulating our psychic intuition and transcending it to our Universal “crown energy” where we can make the most use of the information. See also Auralite (a familiar cousin). It is also believed to diminish addictive tendencies and assists in recovery better than just amethyst or quartz alone, since it is a wonderful marriage of the two. This stone lends itself to spiritual support, healing awareness and insightful information.
