February’s birthstone is the amethyst, the purple-hued quartz crystal famous for its healing properties, namely for headaches, fatigue, and anxiety. The name itself comes from the Greek “amethystos,” which means “remedy for drunkenness,” and might be why it has long been associated with Bacchus, the God of wine. Once rare enough to only be available to royalty, the stone is now more common, though still impressive with a dramatic color range of pale lilac to deep eggplant.
February babes can sport this stunning stone for empowerment and to guard themselves against illness. We’ve found necklaces, rings, earrings and more from some of our favorite sustainable brands that feature the purple gem. So go on, treat yourself (or your favorite February birthday pal!) to one of these beauties!
