Amethyst- February Birthstone

Amethyst is a variety of quartz known for its purple, violet hue.  The purple coloring of amethyst is caused by irradiation and iron impurities in the crystal.  The dark purple colored amethyst is found in Siberia with 75-80% purple hue and 15-20% blue hue.  This type of amethyst is known as the “Deep Siberian.” The lighter purple amethyst, “Rose de France,” was once undesirable but is now very popular in jewelry.  The hardness of amethyst, 7 on the Mohs scale, makes the gemstone ideal for jewelry making.  The lighter purple amethyst are more popular now, while there is a high demand from collectors for the “Deep Siberian.”  


Amethyst has been used as a gemstone since the ancient Egyptians.  The ancient Greeks and medieval Anglo-Saxons also used amethyst. The Greeks believed that amethyst could prevent intoxication. The Greek word for the gemstone is amethystos, which can be translated to “not drunken.”  The ancient Greeks would carve wine goblets from amethyst as an antidote for the alcohol.


The Europeans used amethyst as a amulet for protection in battles and in beaded strings to keep them cool headed.  Amethyst was considered a symbol of royalty in the Middle Ages in England.  Amethyst was considered extremely precious and one of the Cardinal Gems of the Old World.  This lasted until large amounts of amethyst were found in Brazil forming in large geodes within volcanic rocks.  Amethyst is considered a semiprecious gemstone currently.


The hardness of amethyst, 7 on the Mohs scale, makes the gemstone ideal for jewelry making.  The lighter purple amethyst is more popular now, while there is a high demand from collectors for the “Deep Siberian.”

Imagine becoming vastly wealthy overnight. Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyck from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m) in 2017. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top

Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
