The February Birthstone Meaning

The February Birthstone Meaning
February: the month that is cold and dark out for most of the world. Therefore, it is without a doubt that the amethyst, a stone associated with peace and courage is just the right gem to gift to someone who needs some warmth this time of year.

HISTORY OF THE FEBRUARY BIRTHSTONE

A purple quartz and stunning blend of violet and red, the amethyst is the second most abundant material found in Earth’s crust. Its hardness makes a durable and lasting option for jewelry. Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages, dating as far back as the ninth century, appealing to early monarchs. Purple dye was expensive and scarce back then, so it was reserved for the garments of kings and queens. The amethyst can be found all over the world, including the United States, Brazil, Zambia, and Canada in geodes or in the cavities of granitic rocks.

A SYMBOL OF PROTECTION

The gift of an amethyst is a symbol of protection and power to overcome difficulty. It is said to strengthen the bond in a love relationship, so it makes an ideal gift for one’s birthday or anniversary. As it holds such power, its gorgeous glow will definitely make the giftee feel like royalty! The Mother’s Disc and Birthstone Necklace is a magnificent gift to give to someone celebrating their birthday in February. The wearer is able to carry their loved ones’ names as well as their birthstones, protecting the wearer as well as giving her the ability to carry a part of her heart wherever she goes.

THE MEANING BEHIND THE FEBRUARY BIRTHSTONE

Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated the amethyst stone with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends believed that the amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed in battle and business affairs. The name comes from the Ancient Greek from the word methustos, which means “intoxicated”. Because the amethyst is associated with wine, it was believed that wearing the amethyst prevented drunkenness. The amethyst is not only the February birthstone, but it is also used to celebrate the 6th and 17th year of marriage.

EXUDING SPIRITUATLITY

As the amethyst is also a symbol of spirituality, it has been used to ornament churches and crosses as well as worn in rings and on rosaries by priests and bishops. Such a spiritual stone is a very meaningful gift to give to a loved one. The Initial Bracelet with Swarovski Stone is such a wonderful bracelet to adorn one’s wrists, with the option for one to choose their birthstone and initial, carrying a spiritual piece with them on the daily.
