February Birthstone - Amethyst

Amethyst is the birthstone for February.

One of the many varieties of quartz, amethyst occurs in shades of lavender through to violet.

A truly healing stone linked to the crown chakra, it is said to purify the mind and clear negative thoughts. It is associated with trust, intuition and spirituality.

Amethyst can be found in Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, Africa, Canada, Russia, USA and Europe.

Christian bishops once wore amethyst rings to symbolise royalty and an allegiance to Christ and Catholic clergy wore it in their crosses to symbolise piety and celibacy.

We love the vibrance of amethyst, especially when set in 18ct yellow gold, as purple and yellow are complementary colours.

As the birthstone for February, amethyst jewellery makes a wonderful birthday present, anniversary present or push present for babies born during the month.
