There's something so magical about the way these naturally formed Amethyst points capture the light. Each one with its blended purple colour pallet and glittering sparkle. Great size to carry around in a purse or pocket. The birthstone for the month of February, and the official gem for Wednesday, Jupiter and those born under the sign of Pisces, Amethyst is the name given to purple Quartz. Its name is thought to have derived from the Greek word ‘Amethustos’, ‘a’ meaning ‘not’ and ‘methustos’ meaning ‘to intoxicate’. Many years ago, the wealthy lords were said to pour water into amethyst goblets while their guests drank wine. The purple colour of the amethyst disguising the colour of the drink so the lord could look like he was drinking while still remaining sober. In ancient times it was also believed to you could save someone intoxicated from delirium if you mixed crushed amethyst into their drink. 

Greek mythology tells a story of Dionysus, the god of intoxication, and a young beautiful maiden, named Amethystos, who refused his advances. While Amethystos was on her way to pray to the goddess Diana, Dionysus released ferocious tigers to attack her but before could get to her, Diana turned Amethystos into a clear quartz statue to protect her. Distraught at what he had almost done to Amethystos, Dionysus wept tears of wine turning the clear quartz purple and creating Amethyst. Amethyst’s use in jewellery can be traced back as far as the Neolithic period (approximately 4,000 BC) and samples set into gold rings have been uncovered in burial sites from around 2,400 BC. In the Old Testament, amethyst was one of the twelve stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel and also one of the twelve gemstones adorning the breastplate of the high priest Aaron It’s be worn by Bishops and Priests since the Middle Ages and highly prized by royalty with several pieces featured in the British Crown Jewels. Amethyst was also known as a personal favourite of Catherine the Great. A crystal with intense energy, Leonardo da Vinci believes amethyst has the power to control evil thoughts and to enhance intelligence while the Hebrews named amethyst “ahlamah,” which means “dream.” as the stone was said to cause dreams and visions. Amethyst has been used to symbolise deep love, happiness, humility, sincerity and wealth and St Valentine, the patron saint of romantic love is said to have worn an Amethyst ring carved with the image of Cupid. This lead to Amethyst becoming February's birthstone Amethyst occurs in many shades, from pastel pinks to deep velvety purples, and can also be pleochroic, meaning flashes of different colours such as fuchsia pinks and tanzanite blues can be witnessed when viewing the stone from different angles.
