Amethyst is one of my favourite gemstones. It is also one of the oldest and best loved gemstones in the world. Amethyst birthstone jewellery is my favourite way to wear purple. We have a wonderful collection of unique Irish handmade February birthstone jewellery with gorgeous February jewellery designs for adults and children.
One of the main reason people have worn amethyst jewellery through the ages is because it is believed to promote clear thinking.
In ancient Greek times it was believed that drinking from a cup made from amethyst that you would be protected from drunkenness. In the early middle ages, Saxon warriors wore amethyst to ensure a clear head while in battle.
If you have amethyst jewellery it is important that you do not expose it to too much heat. Heat can cause amethyst to fracture. All you need to clean your amethyst jewellery is to wash it in a little soapy water now and then.
