Deep and Mysterious, Amethyst


A brief history of Amethyst

Did you know that amethyst is not only the February birthstone, it is also used to celebrate the sixth and 17th years of marriage? It is also the Zodiac stone for the constellation of Pisces. Amethyst is associated with spirituality, wisdom, sobriety, and security. 

According to The American Gem Society " ..Throughout history, amethyst has been associated with many myths, legends, religions, and numerous cultures. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed this gemstone could ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus and keep the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted. English regalia were decorated with amethysts during the Middle Ages to symbolize royalty. Amethyst jewelry has been found and dated as early as 2000 BC.

For many years, amethyst was held to be one of the most precious gemstones, often favored by royalty or exclusively by the clergy as a symbol for the deity of Christ. It was even held for many years in the same regard as the diamond. It wasn’t until the discovery of more abundant supplies of amethyst that it became a gemstone enjoyed by more than just the wealthiest buyers.

Many wearers of amethyst throughout history and even today prize the gem for its symbolism as well as its beauty. Leonard da Vinci once said that amethyst helps to quicken intelligence and get rid of evil thoughts.

Today, many wearers simply prize the amethyst gemstone for its beautiful shade of purple and the way it complements both warm and cool colors."(Amethyst History | Discover the History of the Amethyst Precious Stone & More - American Gem Society, 2022)
