Interesting Facts About Amethyst Pendants....
Amethyst is the birthstone for February and zodiac sign of Aquarius and represents the 6th wedding anniversary. The word originates from the Greek "a-methustos" which means not intoxicated, as it was thought to prevent the wearer from becoming drunk. They are also believed to imbue the wearer with a sense of peace and harmony. In fact, during the Middle Ages amethysts were used like bromide to alleviate lustful desires and help maintain celibacy.
Made of crystal quartz, amethyst gemstones can lose their colour over time if exposed to high temperatures and direct sunlight. So take care to store them away from any strong sources of heat or light. The actual reason for the intense purple colour has been a relative mystery for years, but now scientists attribute it to the amethyst´s iron content combined with natural radiation.
