Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and one of the most sought after gems for its purification, cleansing one's energy field of negative influences and attachments, and creating a resonant shield of spiritual Light around the body. It acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attack, geopathic stress and unhealthy environments.
As a talisman, the arrowhead was worn around the neck to ward off the Evil Eye. It symbolized courage, strength, and protection. Native Americans believed the arrowhead could deflect negative energy and allow the wearer to absorb their enemy's power.
