The Pentagram is easily recognized by the interconnected five point star as an endless knot. It is also recognized as a pentacle, the interconnected star within a circle. The (misunderstood) pentagram has been a protection talisman painted and hung above doors, a symbol of the Goddess, of life, the five elements, and even as a Christian symbol. In Mesopotamia it showed royalty and dominion over the four corners of the world. It was used by Hebrews to ascribe Truth as found in the Pentateuch. In ancient Greece, the Pythagoreans considered it a symbol of perfection and early Christians used the symbol to ward away evil and as an emblem of protection, associating it with the five wounds of Christ.
Amethyst attunes to the Third Eye. This is used for stimulating your intuition and trusting your insight. Amethyst is the color that you see in the sky as twilight transitions into night.
