Amethyst for February

Amethyst for February The word “amethyst” is taken from the Greek word “amethustos,” or “not drunken.” The Ancient Greeks felt amethyst could ward off intoxication and, therefore, carved many of their wine goblets from amethyst. Soldiers carried amethyst stones with them onto the battlefield because they believed amethyst helped them keep a level head in the midst of combat. This relationship between amethyst and its power to keep the wearer level headed persists to this day, as evidenced by the February stanza of the birthstone poem:

The February-born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and care,
If they an amethyst will wear.

Amethyst, is a part of the quartz family and appears in a range of light violet to deep purple as primary hues, with touches of red and blue possible as secondary hues. Because of these rich colors, royalty from the Middle Ages wore amethyst necklaces and amethyst rings.

Whether to keep someone’ s head calm, or simply for its royal beauty, amethyst jewelry makes the perfect gift for anyone, even those without a February birthday. Stop in our store to see our assortment of amethyst gems and amethyst jewelry, and find exactly what you’re looking for.
