Amethysts for February

Lucky you if you were born in February!  Thankfully though, you don't have to be born in February to wear amethyst!

Not only has this violet colored gemstone been considered one of the world’s most revered stones for centuries, but it has a rich history of surprising civilizations with its beauty.  It's also famed for carrying the metaphysical properties of healing, protection and abundance.

Ancient Greeks and Romans placed a high value in this stone, and used amethyst in jewelry and amulets.  They believed that the amethyst was synonymous with luxury, so it was used in their crowns, scepters and rings.

In Feng Shui, amethyst is used to amplify the flow of prosperity into the home, when placed in the wealth corner.  Also, since amethyst is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts, many people meditate with it.

It's no wonder that while this calming stone reduces stress and anxiety as well as anger and impatience, it increases common sense to the wearer.  

Amethysts are especially useful with regards to work-related stresses. It facilitates intuition and communication, resulting in increased work effectiveness - and since the stone is also associated with abundance, it is the ideal gem to wear to work for increased success!

When the purple amethyst stone is heated, its color changes to green.  Green amethyst, popularly known as Prasiolite, carries the same energies as the purple variety, plus some additional traits.  It increases your sense of compassion, and can help with challenging relationships by bringing a sense of calm to those involved.
