Amethyst - for February babies

Posted by on

I thought I would continue with birthstones after the interest in last months post about garnet. If your birthday is in February then your birthstone is amethyst.

Amethyst is a variety of quartz, as are an awful lot of things. It comes in various shades of purple and violet from very pale to dark. 

The name comes from ancient Greek, the stone is associated with the god Bacchus, and the name is a reference to the fact that apparently wearing the stone can help protect from drunkenness. If worn whilst sleeping the stone is thought to reduce anger and impatience.

Amethyst used to be very precious but recently large deposits have been found and it can now be quite affordable. I offer amethyst as an option in most of my stone set rings, it is gorgeous with both gold and silver.

 Send me an email if you would like further details of any of my designs with an amethyst. I would love to hear from you. nikki@nikkistarkjewellery.co.uk
