Metaphysical Properties of This Product
Amethyst: Amethyst is well known for being able to afford energetic protection, particularly when our defenses are weakened (such as by alcohol or drugs), and particularly against entities or other forms of attachments. The energy of this purple stone is used to fill one’s aura, thereby creating a bubble of protection. This energy also cleanses the body and energy field.
Amethyst is also known for its ability to stimulate and open our intuition and psychic skills. It promotes spirituality, higher states of consciousness, and connection with the divine. It has calming properties, which help to ease stress, focus the mind, and enhance meditation.
Physically, Amethyst is said to help the immune system, the digestive system, the endocrine system, the respiratory system, the blood, and pain.* It is particularly useful for issues of the head (e.g., headaches, clear thinking, memory, neural connections). Amethyst is also used to release addictions.
Mohs hardness: 7.
Lepidolite: Lepidolite is “one of the most powerful stones for countering stress, worry, fear, grief,” anxiety, nervousness, nightmares, sleeplessness, loss, depression, and trauma.* It is therefore an excellent stone to help Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is also beneficial for children, particularly empathically sensitive children, and animals.
The energy of Lepidolite promotes the inner states of serenity, calm, peace, and grace. These traits help the user when responding to external situations that are challenging, emotional, and even hostile.
As well, if one “is depressed, [Lepidolite] allows for the willing descent into the grief beneath the depression.”* This stone helps one to “disengage one’s sense of identity from” past experiences, preventing one from using traumas “as a badge of courage or a secret source of pride,” and rather encouraging the user “to identify solely with the presence of the Creator and the present moment.”*
Physically, Lepidolite helps to create emotional balance and mental balance. It also helps to diminish the role of an overactive sympathetic nervous system (the fight-or-flight system), enabling one to be more present in the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and relaxation response). Much healing can result from the latter state, including healing of disharmony that has been caused by extreme stress.
Lepidolite, Lilac: Lilac Lepidolite is a pale purple form of lepidolite that is currently found only in Zimbabwe, Africa. It carries the above-mentioned properties of Lepidolite, but adds the following benefits:
– connection to the Higher Self;
– awareness of the Divine;
– co-creation with the Divine;
– an inner state of “peace, serenity and love,” particularly in response to stress, nervousness, tension, grief, loss, depression, trauma, major life changes, and nervous breakdowns;
– healing of the heart;
– inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain; and
– sleep problems and nightmares, including in children.*

Quartz (Clear): Clear Quartz is best known for two characteristics: it is an amplifier; and it can be programmed. The former means that this stone will amplify the energies and characteristics of whatever is near it–be it another stone or a feeling. This characteristic is often used by healers to magnify the energies that they channel into a patient.
The latter means that intentions and energies can be set into the stone, and it will hold these programs very well. (Because Clear Quartz is programmed so easily, when you obtain one of these stones, it is important to clear all prior programming that may be in it–either accidentally or deliberately–unless you are aware of the programming and give permission for it. Put The Light Here clears all of our stones prior to using them in our products.) Of all stones, Clear Quartz is essentially the pure and empty vessel, the blank slate, awaiting instructions.
Additionally, this stone can clear blocks in the body, intensify psychic and spiritual experiences, and unlock memories.
