For the love of Amethyst
The colour of the year for 2018 is Pantone's Ultra Violet and the perfect gemstone match is Amethyst. As well with Valentine’s Day coming up in February, fall in love and celebrate with an Amethyst. Quartz in its purest form is colorless, but is most prized for its purple variety- Amethyst. Purple has long been considered a royal color, so it is not surprising that amethyst has been so much in demand throughout history. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty.  
 
February’s birthstone amethyst is available in small and large sizes, although as with all gemstones, very large sizes in rich, deep colors have always been rare. We stock a variety of sizes, shapes, and tones ranging from light to dark purple. We also carry Green Amethyst. Call us for all your Amethyst needs 1-800-811-3366.

Amethyst History
Its name comes from the Greek word Amethystos, meaning to be sober or not to be drunk.  Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Great thinkers like Leonardo da Vinci believed that amethyst could dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence.
