Amethyst is February’s birthstone. A symbol of peace, love, protection and tranquility, amethyst is found in purple shades ranging from pale lilac to deep violet.
Amethyst has long been used to ward off intoxication and perturbed states of mind. Ancient cultures associated its power with the ability to ward off evil spirits and energy, attributing it with the talismanic power to cleanse and renew.
The ancient Egyptians used amethyst to guard against guilty and fearful feelings. It has been worn as protection from self-deception as well as witchcraft. Amethyst has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centres – mind, body and soul, making it one of the power stones.
Purple is definitely the colour to be seen in this year, as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 is ultraviolet; amethyst jewellery is the perfect way to tap into this colour trend.
