Is amethyst your birthstone?? Lucky you! Amethyst is the perfect healing stone! It is accessible to many and super gorgeous. Wear it to live in the present and get rich!
Amethyst is a chakra stone -- linked to the crown chakra. Meditate with it! It will help you clear your mind and assist in purging negativity, stress, and anxiety. (This is why you often see amethyst geodes in Spas and Wellness Centers.) Amethyst is also associated with prosperity and money. The amethyst properties which facilitate intuition and communication can also be applied to increased work effectiveness. Therefore this stone is said to help with money worries and job woes.
We are lucky that Amethyst is so abundant on earth -- found almost everywhere -- therefore quite affordable. Amethyst is natural quartz and gets its color from irradiation at the earth’s crust. While amethyst is usually recognizable as purple, the gemstone ranges from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple -- the darker the purple the more prized. We have evidence that Ancient Greeks used Amethyst in jewelry as long as 25,000 years ago. The name comes from the Ancient Greek, derived from the word “methustos,” which means “intoxicated.” Ancient wearers believed it could protect them from drunkenness.
At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, we’re not sure if amethyst will protect you from drunkenness … but we love the part about affordability and beauty! The amethyst in the Ultra Violet Ring is AAA Grade and stunning! We also love the design of this ring. It harkens back to the Purple Haze Ring from the Royals Collection but is smaller in stature and very graceful. The mixed metals are here to stay for a bit and the gold and silver together is fantastic in this ring! (14KTGF) An exciting new design -- available in Amethyst, Labradorite, and Moonstone.

Is your birthstone diamond? Congratulations -- they are kind of the penultimate stone in our jewelry culture. They have captured such a huge part of our imaginations and an even larger part of our jewelry industry -- but is that because of how utterly beautiful and captivating they are? Or how rare?
