January has flown by, and with February arriving quickly, it's time to start celebrating our new stone of the month: Amethyst.  This popular purple gem stone is associated with Christ, due to its biblical references. This stone is also associated with wealth and royalty; making it a prized gem stone to posses for any Pisces. The Amethyst is actually a stone believed to hold protective qualities; it is ranked very highly on the gem-scale, due to its excellent quality. In fact, during a certain period, the Amethyst was a well sought after stone, being as popular as the diamond stone we (and our purses) all know and love!

Anything Amethyst will make the perfect gift for a birthday this February, or for the big event that falls once a year on the 14th - Valentine's Day. So, shop our Amethyst rings, pendants, earrings and more here and get stuck into our second month into 2017!

The gemstone  Turquoise  has  been  highly prized since Egyptian times and its name means 'Turkish Stone' as it was imported to Europe  via Turkey. The colour of this historic gemstone ranges  from  a  greenish  blue  to  a  beautiful, striking sky blue and is one of several instances  where the name of a colour is derived from the name of a gemstone.

It is interesting to note that in order for it to be deemed Turquoise  it  has  to  be  of  the  highest quality. When Turquoise is mined it can often  have traces of chrome or iron set deep within it  and it is these elements which give the gemstone its unique colour.

As the gem is opaque, it is rarely faceted and is  usually cabochon cut or made into beads. 

Turquoise  is  said  to  have  been  mined  more  than 6000 years ago in Sinai. In Persian times  people would adorn themselves with Turquoise,  usually around the neck or on the wrist, as it was  believed the stone would prevent fatalities.

It  has  long  been  thought  to  be  a  holystone  bringing  the  wearer  good  fortune  and  a  prosperous life: even today Turquoise is thought  to  clear  the  mind  and  cheer  people  up.  Its  colourful blues denote a sense of wellbeing and  spiritual harmony.  Turquoise often gets given  as a gift to a loved one or dear friend and as  it is one of the birthstones for December, it  makes an ideal Christmas present!
