February traditional birthstone is the purple amethyst. I have always loved this stone, in certain conditions you see the glimmering shafts of blues, reds and pinks, shards of light that evoke strength, beauty and clarity of mind~

"The February born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they, the amethyst will wear."

The amethyst comes in tones of bright green also, who knew?  Which do you prefer, purple or apple green?

The amethyst is widely known to have healing properties to promote peace, sobriety and along with that deep understanding and compassion. With these attributes, focus is facilitated, which in turn supports flow, the ultimate aspiration in doing.

Nota Bene~ I wear a pale green amethyst as a charm when I play tennis, along with my St. Michael medal for power and strength in my tennis singles game, together with my silver medallion of St. Christopher, for safety in the journey. 

                                       St. Valentine especially adored the amethyst~

The color purple through the ages evokes royalty, notice the kings and queens of yesterday in their garb and jewels of purple tones.  The purple dye was simply quite complex and expensive to create, thus held in highest esteem to royalty and high nobility.
