Gemstone of the month: amethyst

The official birthstone for the month of February is the Amethyst. It's also the talisman for the Zodiac sign of Pisces. All Amethyst is purple (my very favorite color), although it's hue can range from light lilac, lavender to a deep purple. The color has long been associated with passion, royalty and mourning.
It's magical properties include protection against drunkenness, healing, aiding in psychic awareness, enhancing creativity and imagery as well as having a calming effect upon the wearer. It also is believed to protect against nightmares. It's associated with the female energy of the moon.
We should all wear more purple!
