Believed to quicken intelligence and dispel evil thoughts.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February and is sometimes associated with 6th anniversaries. Throughout history, amethysts were thought to have power over evil thoughts, enhance intelligence and contribute to shrewd business decisions. Legend suggests that the stone kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battles and business affairs.
The gem is usually a deep purple colour, although its tones can range from purples to pastel pinks. The Ancient Greek word amethystos, meaning ‘not drunk’, arose from the pretty gem’s wine colour.
