Amethyst February Birthstone Necklace
Amethyst is one of the best known – and most popular gemstone. It is also the February birthstone. Did you know that there are several types of amethyst? Well, there are. And this necklace has them in addition to the “traditional” deep purple, there is also banded amethyst and lavender amethyst, a lighter shade of lavender. These are all put together beautifully in this ombre necklace. Measuring about 18 inches in length, it is made of amethyst shaded from light to dark. Now, you may notice that there are some variations in color, even within individual stones. That’s because these stones, unlike the majority of gemstones, are natural and untreated. That means they have not been “enhanced” by dying or heating in any way – this is exactly how Mother Nature created them! This necklace features an easy to fasten toggle clasp and is accented with silver plated bands.
Metaphysically, amethyst is an important stone. It is said to be a healing, purifying and calm. Many believe it is protective, keeping negativity at bay. And many believe it opens the third eye chakra, which is the center of intuition and foresight. It’s no wonder amethyst is so revered.
