The Ageless Allure of Amethysts

February birthdays have the lilac hues of amethyst as a gem birthstone, and it has a long history, being worn by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Anglo-Saxons.

It was a belief in the spiritual and medicinal properties of amethyst that made it popular, with the Greeks believing it could prevent drunkenness, and medieval warriors wore them as amulets to protect them in battle.

Regardless of whether you believe amethysts contain these healing properties, there's no denying an otherworldly beauty, the deep hues warming up cold days.
