Amethyst – February Birthstone

To personalise your jewellery you can add some rough natural amethyst if your loved one was born in February or to symbolise sobriety.

Tibetans consider amethyst sacred to the Buddha and make prayer beads from it. Amethyst is considered the birthstone of February. In the Middle Ages, it was considered a symbol of royalty and used to decorate English regalia. In the Old World, amethyst was considered one of the Cardinal gems, in that it was one of the five gemstones considered precious above all others – Wikipedia
