The Power behind Semi-Precious Stones
The birthstone for February is Amethyst, do you know the meaning behind this stone and how it affects the person wearing it? Amethyst is a beautiful purple shaded stone and comes in very light shades through darker shades. Whether born in February or not, many of us love to wear this stone! This stone belongs to the quartz family and the purple color is due to traces of iron. Amethyst is an especially powerful stone and is a symbol of sincerity, security and peace of mind. It is also a stone of “divine love” (adapted from Mr. Bead). Legend says this stone can help dream inspiration if placed under the pillow at night! Currently our single stone amethyst earrings are featured in the window of Gallery of Jewels on 24th Street in San Francisco. And we have a beautiful Amethyst birthstone ring, which is currently 40% off—as an online only promotion!
