Amethyst, Birthstone for February, is one of the most beloved semi-precious stones, owing to its rich natural purple colour. Amethyst gets its purple tones from the traces of iron present in its structure, and varies naturally in hue, transparency and inclusions. It has been prized for centuries for its rich colour, which has long been associated with royalty and luxury. Amethyst is thought to enhance creativity, as well as promoting calmness, tranquility and sleep. Amethyst is a wonderfully calming and nurturing stone, a perfect antidote to these stress filled days!
