Birthstone for February - Amethyst

The colour of Amethyst gemstones varies from pale lilac to a deep purple.

Amethyst is said to be associated with love, sincerity and courage. It also can reinforce inner strength, relieve stress and bring peace to the wearer.

Amethyst gemstones are also believed to be effective in general healing. The Greeks believed Amethyst would prevent them getting drunk and so today, Amethyst continues to be thought of as an aid to those who struggle with addictions, such as alcohol.

Amethyst is a popular gemstone to be given as a gift in the form of jewellery. It is said to strengthen the bond betwwen the recipient and the giver.
