Purple Passion. From refreshing lilac to ripe plum, Amethyst demonstrates the drama and excitement of the color purple.

Perhaps because of its depth and richness, Amethyst has always been associated with intense emotion. For that reason, the legend of its origin is fitting, depicting a tale of revenge, devotion and immortal remorse.

The gem is used to celebrate February birthdays, as well as the fourth, sixth and ninth wedding anniversaries.
