Amethyst is a purple member of the quartz family of crystals. Aleister Crowleyâ€™s story The Wake World describes the spiritual journey of a young princess through various levels of attainment on her way to enlightenment. The princess wears a ring carved of amethyst. She repeats a prayer to her Holy Guardian Angel while meditating on the ring; I pray Thee keep the holy tryst, within this ring of amethyst. Amethyst is a powerful protective crystal that brings deep understanding, restful sleep, lucid dreams, spiritual awakening, and finally, transcendence. It is also the traditional birthstone of the month of February. This tiny, solid, white bronze cap has wavy spiral shapes carved into its face. The design and shape of the cap are sophisticated enough to radiate beauty and tame enough to allow the gemstone to resonate on its own wavelength.
