February - Amethyst (The 2020 Birthstone Collection)

February – Amethyst

 

Amethyst is one of the most popular gems in the world, although at one time it was only available to royalty. Today, this purple-coloured quartz variety is more affordable and widely available to the mass market.

 

Leonardo da Vinci wrote that wearing an amethyst “quickens intelligence and gets rid of evil thoughts”.

 

Birthstones are not only fun and nostalgic, but throughout our lives they serve as a beautiful reminder of the month when we were born. The history behind birthstones is fascinating, with origins that date back to the Old Testament and Aaron’s breastplate, which featured 12 gemstones that represented the 12 tribes of Israel.

 

Over time, the 12 gems eventually became associated with the zodiac. Then, in 1912, the National Association of Jewelers established the modern list of birthstones we know today.
