amethyst february birthstone

You are your own artistic muse. That’s the greatest thing about you. You make your downfalls a force to shoot you up.  

Amethysts are for artists. Not just the visible ones, also those who keep their poetry secret. Spilling your story often means sharing your pain. And you may have chosen to hide that behind carefully barricaded doors instead. Keeping the untold stories and poems coiled inside of you, to the point of more pain. Letting the chores of the day kill the dreams of a lifetime, leaving you to grieve the stories you’ll never get to tell. So much inside of you and not a clue how to pour it all out. 

But what comes from suppressing your emotions is an internal fit of rage. So pouring it out you must - ideally before the rage sets in.


the Greek ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated”, a.k.a. “on top of my shit

In Greek mythology, amethyst is the amulet to keep yourself from going overboard. Drunk, but not hammered. Loving, without the lust. Living, instead of existing. We mortals confuse the line and will bend over backwards getting our balance back. Amethyst is there to get it just right.

Have you heard of Bacchus, the wine god? And the poor mortal, all too human Amethyst? In his typical obnoxious drunk fashion, Bacchus sent beasts to kill Amethyst - for absolutely no reason. Poor Amethyst prayed to the goddess Diana, who then turned her into a rock white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his deed a little too late, poured fine wine onto her as an apology. Sadly for Amethyst, she’s now just a violet stone.  

Jealousy, rage, passion - whatever the source of your creative force is, amethyst keeps you afloat. It cools down rage and lifts imagination. It’s a joyous grounding color that balances warm red with cool blue. It’s a creative stone to calm down your nerves.

Tough Love level: 

7 Mohs scale of hardness with good to very good toughness - as a member of the quartz family, amethyst is as hard as dust (and dust is pretty hard and can make permanent scratches on surfaces). Because of its hardness, amethyst can handle the wear and tear of everyday scratches - an ideal everyday ring. When you’re storing it, make sure to keep it away from stones on a higher number in the Mohs scale, such as rubies, sapphires, or diamonds. Find out more about hardness vs toughness here.

Common treatments: 

Often heated to deepen color, remove smoky appearances, or create exotic shades. Find more about common gemstone treatments here. 

Cleaning, care, and cauton: 

Amethyst is safe enough under ultrasonic cleaner, unless it was dyed or had fracture fillings. Use warm, soapy water, preferably made from natural ingredients, like our lerak jewelry wash. Steam cleaning isn’t recommended. 


Amethyst is a variety of quartz, a mineral stone so abundant it exists amongst sand and dust. Amethyst’s purple color comes from the combination of iron and nature’s irradiation. Depending on where it’s located, amethyst can come in opaque burgundy or pale lavender. 

  • Chevron Amethyst 

    A combination of purple and white quartz, banded together in V-shape lines. Since you get both purple and white quartz, you get the best of both worlds. 

  • Green Amethyst 

    Aka prasiolite are rare in nature. Enough heat for enough time can turn purple amethyst green, and men have worked out how to speed up this process with irradiation. A natural prasiolite is pale green in color, and mostly comes from a small mine in Brazil.

  • Rose de France Amethyst 

    A pinkish lavender to pale lilac shade. But it’s neither a pink amethyst nor a light tone purple amethyst. The industry has been having trouble pinning down a name unto it because it has incredibly rare chemical properties. In a nutshell, it’s a dichroic amethyst with pink body color, but which radiates a purple hue. 

  • Red Amethyst

    When excessive amounts of iron is present. The color itself comes from hematite inclusions on the outer layer, giving it a deep, red-brown look.

  • Rutilated Amethyst

    A rare quartz characterized by the presence of brown needle-like inclusions. Kinda reminds you of those antique amber with millions-year old insects trapped inside. 

different types of amethyst
  • Siberian Amethyst 

    A rich velvety purple with blue and red flashes, the deepest, most saturated and most wanted shade of amethyst. 

  • Ametrine 

    A twin stone of amethyst and citrine – purple on one end, deep yellow on the other. It’s a quartz with different ‘impurities’ on each side.
