Interesting Facts, Legends, and Myths About Gemstones

Interesting Facts, Legends, and Myths About Gemstones

Precious and semi-precious stones have been honored for many centuries. The folklore concerning them is definitely fascinating. All cultures treasure the stories that go back to the beginning of history.

Birthstones Originated in the Bible

It is believed that the Breastplate of Aaron is the origin of birthstones. Exodus 28, 15-30, calls for the twelve stones of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, corresponding to the zodiac signs of the time, be set into four rows. Since our calendar month system was not known at the time of Exodus, birthstones became more commonly associated with a person’s calendar month of birth.

Myths and Legends Behind Amethyst Birthstone Jewelry

Myths and Legends Behind Amethyst Birthstone Jewelry

Amethyst is an instantly recognizable purple quartz stone that is used for jewelry and healing purposes throughout the world. Ranging in shade from pale lavender to the deepest purple, the gem is prized for its beauty and properties and is the birthstone for the month of February. With these amazing properties, amethyst birthstone jewelry is an ideal gift for a beloved friend or family member -- or even for yourself.

Amethyst Origins

One of the earliest legends surrounding the amethyst comes to us from Ancient Greece and explains the origins of this highly regarded purple stone. In the story, Dionysius, the Greek god of wine and revelry was angered at a mortal woman, who failed to pay him the proper respect.

February's Birthstone: The Romance of Amethyst

February's Birthstone: The Romance of Amethyst

Amethyst is February's birthstone. Some might wonder whether amethyst’s rich violet hue is appropriate for a month associated with red roses and candy hearts. But as it happens, the legend of Saint Valentine says that he wore an amethyst ring carved in the shape of cupid. Amethyst beads, with their grape purple tints, have been associated with love, fertility and romance long before pink Hallmark Cards took February’s center stage.
