The Complete Guide to the February Birthstone

The Complete Guide to the February Birthstone

Amethyst is one of the most popular birthstones worldwide and represents those born in February. This beautiful gemstone has a vibrant history dating back to Ancient Greece and is said to improve focus and sharpness with its significant holistic healing properties. Aquarius and Pisces babies are truly blessed to have such a captivating gemstone attached to their birth month.

In this blog, we’ll explain everything you need to know about this stunning February birthstone, from its vivid colours to its spiritual and emotional meaning.

The Origins of Amethyst Birthstone

This February birthstone has a rich history. Here are some intriguing facts about the origins of this gem.

  • A member of the Quartz family, Amethyst is a hard mineral with a glass-like lustre. This gemstone is more transparent to translucent and can have incredibly complex lattice-shaped crystal formations. 
  • The word Amethyst came from the Greek word “Amethystos”, which translates to “to not intoxicate”. In fact, Amethyst is believed to serve as an antidote to drunkenness and is said to sober the mind. The Greek God of wine, Dionysus, is also said to have favoured Amethyst. This gemstone is also said to protect you from spiritual and emotional intoxication (not just after a glass too many!)
  • Amethysts were as rare as rubies and emeralds until the 1800s until more gemstone deposits were discovered outside of Russia. Today, Amethyst mines are also found in locations like Brazil, Africa, and Arizona.
  • This beautiful quartz is the birthstone for the zodiac Aquarius, an air sign, and Pisces, a water sign. It’s said that an Amethyst can allow you to float into new depths of your consciousness for soul exploration and levitate into deeper states of mindfulness. 
  • The Ancient Greeks believed that this stone could help stimulate the wearer’s emotions and awaken hidden creativity suppressed within the body, allowing ideas to flow freely.

What Colour is the February Birthstone? 

There are many different shades of Amethyst, but the most common form is purple. 

The bold, vibrant energy of the crystal easily draws people in, where they can uncover a whole range of diverse shades of Amethyst ranging from lilac, aubergine, violet, and deep lavender. This magnificent stone has been used in jewellery making for many years due to its unique characteristics. 

The individuality of the purple crystals quickly became associated with exclusivity, power, and dominance. This dazzling gemstone has been favoured by royalty as a prized accessory for many generations. 

Although some of these crystals undergo heat treatments to bring out their true purple saturation, they still have immense healing properties that deeply benefit the soul. I’m sure we can agree that those born in February have a genuinely intriguing stone that looks incredible when used in jewellery making.
