Amethyst - The Crown Jewel of February and Aquarius


As we glide towards the end of our journey through the months, we're greeted by the enchanting presence of February's birthstone – the magnificent Amethyst. Picture this: a gorgeous purple gem that's essentially quartz jazzed up with a higher iron content, resulting in a mesmerizing color palette ranging from delicate lavender to deep, sultry burgundy-purple hues.

Now, let's talk about Amethyst's fascinating history. This gem has been cherished worldwide for eons. In Feng Shui, it's believed to work wonders for a restful night's sleep. The ancient Greeks and Romans thought it could help keep those wild cravings and drunken escapades at bay. And in more recent times, it's been hailed for its ability to soothe anxiety and tame obsessive behaviors. Talk about a multi-talented gemstone!

You know that feeling of being in your element, totally in tune with your higher self? Well, purple – Amethyst's signature shade – is linked to the crown chakra, which is all about connecting with our inner spirit. No wonder the ancients saw Amethyst as the go-to gem for calming nerves and channeling our best energy.

And hey, let's not forget our Aquarians! Those born between January 20th and February 19th are known for their intellect, creativity, and humanitarian spirit. They're the cool cats who aren't afraid to think outside the box, even if their emotions sometimes run a little wild. Sounds like a match made in gemstone heaven, doesn't it!

Here's some good news: Amethyst ranks a solid 7 to 8 on the Mohs Hardness scale, which means it's tough enough to handle some serious wear and tear. But here's a pro tip: keep your Amethyst away from prolonged sunlight exposure to preserve its luscious purple hues.

So, if you're still riding the wave of your New Year's Resolutions or simply craving more serenity and control in your life, why not invite Amethyst to join your journey? This beautiful gem might just be the sparkling companion you need to rock those goals and shine bright.

Here's to embracing the magic of Amethyst and all the wonderful adventures that await us on this dazzling gemstone journey!
