AMETHYST

Recognised as the official February birthstone, amethysts are simple yet exquisite gemstones with a hardness of 7 on the Moh’s scale. They are mostly purples and violets, ranging from light to dark in colour. High quality amethyst can be found in Siberia; Sri Lanka; Brazil; Uruguay and the far East.

People have prized amethysts for thousands of years. The Ancient Egyptians carved these durable gemstones into the shapes of animals, perhaps as protective amulets. The name Amethyst comes from the Ancient Greek amethystos, meaning “not drunk.” It was believed you could drink all night and remain sober if you had an amethyst on your person. In Greek mythology, amethyst was said to be rock crystal coloured purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry.

Many cultures have spiritual beliefs connected to Amethysts. Often viewed as a stone of peace, some believe amethyst’s calming presence produces soothing dreams by bringing the dreamer more in tune with the Divine. This clarity and peacefulness also extends to the waking mind. Amethysts are said to help the mind flow freely in both mental and metaphysical dimensions.
