Deep-dive into You: February Birthstone

Updated: May 3

Amethyst

The birthstone for those born in the month of February is an amethyst. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word "methustos", which approximately translates to "intoxicated." It was thought that wearing an amethyst would keep you from getting drunk in ancient Greece. So PARTY away while wearing this gemstone!


Amethyst is actually a quartz variation. Quartz, the same stone that covers white sand beaches and is used to make glass, is one of the most abundant minerals on the planet. Amethyst is formed when certain imperfections in quartz combine to generate a purple color.


Birthstone healing powers and therapeutic effects are the subject of various stories and myths. Wearing a gemstone throughout its designated month can enhance its healing properties and have a therapeutic effect on the wearer, believe it or not. Each birthstone could be worn in each month if you want to make the most of it.


For the Amethyst: This gemstone aids in the reduction of insomnia, arthritis, pain relief, and circulatory issues. Amethyst is considered the gemstone of meditation, peace, balance, courage, and inner strength.
