Since the time of the Egyptian Pharos amethyst crystal has been prized for its metaphysical and healing properties. Referred to as the ‘Gem of Fire’, this semi precious stone was a common feature among the British crown jewels and considered an insignia of power.
Amethyst is a variety of Quartz crystal with the addition of manganese, which gives it a deep violet color. Once believed that amethyst could cure drunkenness and uncontrollable impulses, it derives its name from ametusthos, a Greek word translating to “not intoxicated”.
In Ayurevedic medicine amethyst is considered to be a meditative and tranquilizing stone, helpful for treating mental and emotional imbalances by calming the nervous system.
The Amethyst Effect and Far Infrared
More recently this crystal has been rediscovered by research into its modern world healing qualities, in particular the amethyst effect.
Amethyst is unique in its ability to both produce Far Infrared and to refract it. The amethyst effect refers to the ability of amethyst to change Far Infrared into a long waveform that is highly biocompatible with the body.
Far Infrared is part of the light spectrum invisible to the human eye. Unlike gamma rays and ultraviolet light Far Infrared is completely safe and in fact essential for health and wellbeing.
The Richway Professional Biomat 7000MX has 18 pounds of amethyst in its surface layer to maximize the health benefits associated with the amethyst effect.

Amethyst can be particularly helpful for over worked individuals who are suffering from ‘burn out’ and chronic stress. The amethyst effect helps to cool a hot temper and relieves anxiety and insomnia.
