February Birthstone and Zodiac

February’s birthday celebrants enjoy the beautiful Amethyst as their birthstone and the zodiac signs of Aquarius and Pisces. All this in 28 days.

Amethyst derives its name from the ancient Greek word methustos, which translates roughly to intoxicated. In ancient Greece, the wearing of amethyst would protect you from getting drunk was a belief. Today it just gives the wearer a sense of pleasure and maybe a bit of the royal feeling.
