Amethyst the birthstone color for February is symbolic of the power to overcome difficulty

Swarovski Crystal Amethyst is one of the most popular crystal colors.

Just looking into the deep purple depths of an Amethyst fills you with a sense of powerful well-being. The ancient Greeks believed that Amethyst held many powers, among them protection against intoxication. In fact, the word Amethyst comes from the Greek word “amethystos,” meaning sober. In ancient Greece Amethyst was associated with, Dionysus, the god of wine, and it was common practice to serve this beverage from Amethyst goblets in the belief that this would prevent overindulgence. Even today, Amethyst is considered a stabilizing force for those struggling to overcome addictive behaviors.

February’s birthstone has been found among the possessions of royalty throughout the ages. The intense violet hue of Amethyst appealed to early monarchs, perhaps because they often wore this color. Purple dye was scarce and expensive at one time, and so it was reserved for the garments of kings and queens.

Amethyst is also symbolic of spirituality. It has been used to ornament temples, churches and crosses and worn in rings and on rosaries by bishops.

The gift of Amethyst is symbolic of protection and the power to overcome difficulty. It is said to strengthen the bond in a love relationship.

Whether or not Amethyst holds such power, its beauty will certainly make anyone who wears it feel like royalty!
