Amethyst is February’s birthstone and 17th wedding anniversary gift. The purple stone was once as expensive as emerald and ruby until Brazil discovered large deposits in the 19th century; now it is moderately priced. Some geodes form so big that you can stand in some of them!
Amethystos literally means “not drunk” in Ancient Greek; it was believed that when wearing amethyst, it could prevent alcohol intoxication.
Amethyst has been worn for centuries and is a well-known sought after stone. Here at KSJ, we have pieces set in sterling silver and also in 14 karat white or yellow gold! Whether you’re looking for an everyday piece or a one of a kind design, you can find it here with us at Kevin Schimke Jewelers!
