Hello my friends!
February almost ends and I haven't post yet anything about the birthstone of this month! So, this is the time! For those who were born in the month of February the Amethyst is the traditional birthstone. This is one of my favorite gems, especially its color!

Amethyst, the gemstone believed by ancient Greeks and Romans to ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus, also is said to keep the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted.
The colours of the amethyst - from light pink to deep purple, indigo and violet - evoke strong healing powers of this crystal. The healing properties of the February birthstone are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to the withdrawal symptoms of any sort of addiction, headaches, insomnia, arthritis, pain relief, circulatory system issues and general healing.
Amethyst is associated - stability, peace, balance, courage, inner strength, sincerity and a calm disposition. The amethyst works to purify any space of negative vibrations, emanates higher energy and creates a suitable place for one to come back to the source of his or her own power. It calms and cools excessive emotions, and eases the transition to a more meditative state by clearing the unnecessary mind clutter.
On a physical level, amethyst is said to strengthen the immune system and help heal imbalances of the respiratory tract and skin. It is interesting to note that the name amethyst translated from Greek means a stone that can protect the wearer from intoxication! Is referred to as the the "sobriety stone" as it was once believed to prevent drunkenness and used to treat alcoholism and other types of addictions.
