  • Amethyst -- The Birthstone for February

    Sterling Silver Amethyst Earrings 

      

    The birthstone for February is amethyst, and it is an absolutely stunning gemstone. It is also the anniversary gemstone for the fourth and sixth years of marriage.

    With its regal color -- it is only natural that it adorns several prominent pieces of royal jewelry. Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and is found in a range of shades including deep purple, lavender, violet, and mauve.  It is also the most valuable member of the quartz family. Amethyst is sometimes found mixed with citrine which forms the gemstone ametrine.

     

    Amethyst is a seven on the Moh's scale  of hardness; which means it is a relatively hard stone and more resistant to scratches than other semi-precious stones. However, you must keep in mind that heat, can greatly affect the color. Long exposure to sun light - or other heat sources - can have an adverse effect on it.

    The history and mythology associated with amethyst, is as fascinating as the stone itself. At one time it was believed to thwart intoxication and prevent addiction -- so often times wine goblets were carved out of this dazzling gemstone. In addition to preventing the wearer from succumbing to the effects of alcohol; it also has many other remarkable properties and uses.
