All About the Meaning of Amethyst
Amethyst is a popular gemstone in jewelry that’s known for its light lavender to royal purple hue. Sometimes, amethysts are even light pink or green, though these colorways are less common. Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and is closely related to the gemstones rose quartz and citrine. As the official birthstone of February, many gals wear this stone as a necklace or ring to celebrate their birth month.
Whether you opt to wear this alluring stone in jewelry or place it in your home, it’s said that purple amethyst inspires peace, intuition, and serenity. Learn more about the meaning of amethyst and ways to wear this luxurious gemstone.
