Amethyst
Amethyst is a lovely purple stone with quite a sparkle if it is clear and cut well. Legend has it that ancient Egyptian soldiers used to wear amethyst on their arms as they went into battle. Since properties of this stone include helping to keep one cool-headed, it is quite possible that the Egyptians knew this and did it for this reason. Why else would they wear such ornaments into battle?
This stone is good for decision making. It also has numbing properties. Too much amethyst in a room, like a massive chunk of it, can cause a general anaesthetic effect and make it difficult to think in that place.
