Amethyst: The Birthstone of February

Red might be one of the popular colours connected with February, thanks to St. Valentines Day, but when we talk about the month’s birthstone, you will find lots of love for a purple stone we call Amethyst.

Amethyst has been held in high regard for many centuries. Not just for their beauty but also for their associated spiritual and therapeutic properties. Amethyst has long been worn by royalty as a sign of high status. Leonardo da Vinci even believed that the stones could make a person smarter. Meanwhile, the ancient Romans and Greeks believed it could protect against the mind-dulling impacts of too much wine.

The Beauty of Amethyst

The gemstone signifying the month of February is the Amethyst. Did you know it’s’ also a representation of the Zodiac stone for the constellation of Pisces?

In case you didn’t know, Amethyst is a quartz variation and is distinguished by its prismatic crystals. Such crystals have six different sides at every end that can show their color at the tips. It’s only characterized as purple, even though it can come in different shades.

Based on where they come from, this gemstone is unique to its region. Please note that Amethyst has been seen in Zambia, Namibia, Brazil, and Mexico, not to mention it’s also mined in the U.S. from Maine and North Carolina.

In the northern hemisphere, February’s month can be one of the darkest and coolest throughout the winter months. Most experience sessions of sadness and depression during this time. It comes as no shock that the Amethyst can be presented as a present to uplift a loved one’s spirit so their birth-month can be a time of rejoicing, even in the darkest of times.

Purple in Amethyst was considered the color of royalty, which makes the gemstone noble enough to have been worn by many influential monarchs. What’s more, they are decorated on the British Crown Jewels and the cherished gemstone of Egyptian Royalty and Catherine the Great.

Are you one of those people who might have received an amethyst as a present? Note that it’s a symbol to build serenity and calmness, granting balance in emotional times.

Amethyst has also known as the stone of lovers. During the days of chivalry and romance in the Middle Ages, a heart-shaped amethyst made the utmost imaginable passion for a couple to stay in love for the rest of their lives.
