This morning I was reading about a friend who recommended Amethyst to help heal a friends headaches. I found this information fascinating. My birthstone (February) happens to be the Amethyst, and aside from that, I have always wondered why I have been drawn to this powerful gem. We have Amethyst clusters positioned around our home, thanks to the principles of Feng Shui and color purple but I intuitively have always FELT a special draw or affinity to this beautiful stone. Today I decided, if I were ever to get remarried, that the Amethyst would be my choice of gem over the diamond…hands down. A dear friend gifted me a beautiful tennis bracelet several years back, that is adorned with amethysts laid in gold. I recall during one of my many moves in 2004 that I bumped the bracelet and ended up losing one of the gem stones from the bracelet. I was devastated! I went to a local jewel and he couldn’t find the ideal amethyst gem but replaced it with a Citrine. It happened to be where the clasp came together so it was perfect. Both are great gems for protection. To this day the Amethyst and Citrine are my favorite gems.
