For those who are born in February, you probably already know that your birthstone is beautiful Amethyst. Amethyst is a lilac variety of quartz and has been an extremely popular stone in jewellery for many many years.
Amethyst is considered a semi-precious stone; however, they are also available in crystal formation. It is renowned for being a healing stone, used by the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks.
At Aurupt Jewellers in Brisbane, we have many clients enquire about Amethyst to feature in their custom jewellery. Amethyst has a hardness rating of 7 (diamonds are 10), so they work extremely well in rings and pendants. Amethyst comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, the most popular being pear and oval. This vibrant stone works well with Rose Gold, Yellow Gold and White Gold and look stunning alongside diamonds or other coloured gemstones.
