February’s amethyst birthstone inspired pendant is violet and purple. I always liked how the word sounded, and had no idea it was from the Greek word “amethystos,” which means “not intoxicated.” Some ancients made the association that since amethyst was the color of wine, that somehow it could protect from intoxication.
The geodes that fascinated me as a child, with their purple crystal insides, were amethyst. The outside was ordinary rock, and broken open to reveal a whole magical world inside.
If February is your month, or you love purple, I’d be glad to make one for you.
