For all of you February birthday babes out there, this post is for you.
Amethyst is your birthstone and is also given on the 4th, 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries.
Amethysts are part of the quartz family which can be found in many colors, but only a purple quartz is an amethyst. That said, amethyst has varying shades of purple, such as deep purple, light lilac, lavender and mauve or even green.
On a spiritual level, Amethyst helps with any issues you might be having with your crown chakra.
The crown chakra
is located at the very top of your head and connects you to the universe. It is the gateway of energy to the other chakras in your body and it controls how we think and respond to the world around us.
You feel open minded, like you truly fit in the world and that you know your place in the universe. You see things as they are and let things roll off your back.
If you’re feeling clumsy, uncoordinated, and easily confused, it might mean that your crown chakra is out of balance. You will be uninspired and feel apathetic - like everything is out of step. Your thinking will be less flexible and you'll feel disconnected spiritually. You will be rigid in your ways and have difficulty understanding relationships, ideas, and dreams.
Gemstones like amethysts
and other purple and violet gemstones will help with these imbalances. The color violet represents magic, dreams, inspiration, and destiny. Wearing it will remind you to stay open and flexible, to be wise, intelligent and present.
I hope you love learning more about each of the birthstones-- are there any other gemstones you're interested in?
