Purple amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate and soothe the mind and emotions.  It is a semi-precious stone by today's classifications, but to the ancients, it was a "Gem of Fire," a Precious Stone, worth, at times in history, as much as a Diamond.  It has always been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune, their water-god, and is the traditional birthstone of this month.  It is the stone of St. Valentine, and faithful love, and signifies ecclesiastical dignity as the Bishop's Stone.  It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity, and spirituality, yet bears the logic of temperance and sobriety.

So, during this month, I'll be marking Amethyst beads and strands 20% off, and all Amethyst finished jewelry will be 10% off.  Be sure to come in and check them out, and even stick around and make something beautiful to wear.
