Do you have a February birthday?

Amethyst is February’s birthstone and it has a long and deep history. Being one of the most popular stones today among crystal collectors it’s well-loved for its ability to relieve stress and strain, soothes irritability, and helps curb anxiety. Dating back all the way to Ancient Greece, amethyst was associated with the God of Wine, Bacchus, and it was believed that wearing Amethyst could prevent drunkenness. Its associations grew to include keeping its wearer clear-headed, clever, enhancing their intelligence and protecting them from evil thoughts.

Amethyst is a type of quartz and can range in color from a deep purple to a light lavender. Because of it’s stunning purple color, amethyst was typically associated with royalty, since purple was an expensive color to produce in fabric. It’s high status and rarity prior to the 19th century had amethyst in the same class as rubies, emeralds, and diamonds. During the 19th century a large trove of amethyst stones were found in Brazil, decreasing its value but not diminishing its popularity.  Amethyst is a fan favorite in the jewelry world and a very popular options for gift-giving – birthstone related or not!
