    AMETHYST | BIRTHSTONE | FEBRUARY

    AMETHYST is the birthstone for the month of February.  It is said to keep the wearer clear-headed and quick witted.  Throughout history it has been associated with many myths, legends, religions, and cultures.  It is used many times to symbolize regalia, royalty and power.  Amethyst is a beautiful blend of violet and red - a purple quartz which is the second most abundant mineral found in the Earth's crust.  Coloration can range from faint mauve to a deep, rich purple.  Amethysts are very sensitive to heat and can change color depending on what heat/temperature they've been exposed to.  Under some circumstances the purple can change to GREEN - creating Green Amethyst.  And it can even transform into Citrine- a naturally rare mineral.  Even without applied heat, over time a purple amethyst can change color or fade.  Many say that the finest amethyst is found in Russia, however today Brazil is the primary resource, as well as, Zambia.  Amethyst is found right here in North Carolina as well!


    Q uses amethyst in all the aforementioned forms.  The purple and green coloration pair beautifully with both gold and silver settings and act as primary stones or accents.  It also can be found on oxidized (black) chains emphasizing the juxtaposition of hard and soft.    Here are a few designs from Q Evon featuring both the purple amethyst and green amethyst.  To see more designs featuring amethyst CLICK HERE:

    Q Evon uses the February birthstone amethyst in many of her jewelry designs.
