February is a cold, dark month for many people around the world. Amethyst is a gorgeous, richly coloured gemstone, which is a beautiful contrast to this time of year.
If you were born in February, your birthstone is amethyst – the purple variety of quartz that has captivated mankind for millennia. Thought to symbolise royalty with it's purple hue, this stone can be sourced in many areas of the world.
The name comes from the Ancient Greek, derived from the word methustos, which means “intoxicated.” Ancient wearers believed the gemstone could protect them from drunkenness.
The crystal is a quartz which is said to have cleansing properties, it is available in shades of pinkish purple from deep rich tones all the way through to lilac. More recently it has also been found in a beautiful shade of pale mint green!
