Amethyst is the birthstone for February. This gemstone is said to strengthen relationships and increase courage. Once upon a time, the gemstone was said to be an antidote for drunkenness and insomnia. This may be because the word amethyst derives from the Greek word amethystos, which means sober. Amethyst is also a favourite for the religious order and is known as the bishops stone. This amazing piece of jewellery is the perfect thoughtful gift for your special ones born in February.
