Are you born in February? Then Amethyst is your birthstone. Not a lot has been said of this semi precious gemstone - it's true. But, believe it or not, historically the stone had been more valuable than diamonds and rubies, and was often perceived to contain deep healing powers. Amethyst is recommended for those dealing with a lot of stress, especially those that are prone to heavy work loads or have an excessive work ethic. Nowadays, it's being used to highlight deep dark coloring in contrast to other stones like opals, diamonds and morganite. Bet you didn't know: Birth Month: Feburary Zodiac Sign: Aquarius/Pisces Other Applications: Typically the gemstone for 6th marriage anniversary.
