Amethyst was as expensive as ruby and emerald until the 19th Century, when Brazil’s large deposits were discovered. It was believed to prevent intoxication—amethystos means “not drunk” in ancient Greek. Today, as the most valued quartz variety, amethyst is in demand for designer pieces and mass-market jewellery alike, and its purple to pastel hues retain wide consumer appeal.

ST VALENTINE

The patron of romantic love wore an amethyst ring carved with the image of Cupid.

CAMILLO LEONARDI (Astrolger)

The astrologer wrote that amethyst quickens intelligence and gets rid of evil thoughts

BIRTHSTONES & ANNIVERSARIES

Amethyst is the birthstone for February and the gem for the 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries

HISTORY & LORE

Because of its wine-like colour, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected the belief that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Because amethyst was associated with wine, it was believed that wearing amethyst prevented drunkeness.

Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewellery and crown jewels for centuries. It was once considered equal in value to ruby, emerald and sapphire. It’s no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops as well as the coronation regalia of the British royal family.

Amethyst is the birthstone for February and one of the emblems of the twelve apostles.

This is a very big gemstone and would perhaps suit a pendant or a massive ring.
