Astrologers long ago attributed supernatural powers to certain gemstones. The February birthstone, amethyst, is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. The purple color of amethyst has long been a symbol of peace, cleansing, and calming energy. The crystals represent purification and connection to spiritual and divine beings. The meaning of amethyst is attached to serenity, understanding, trust, and grace. The wearing of birthstones is thought to bring good luck, good health, and protection. This necklace measures 18 inches in length and in-between each chipped amethyst is a beaded pearl.
