Here's a little Gregorian Birthstone poem for you Februery babies:

The February-born child shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they an Amethyst will wear.

I'm so over the moon about this necklace that I just may keep it for myself! You just and wait and see! I'll give it a month, maybe two, then it's mine!

So, now that we've gotten that out of the way, here's what we have. This beauty is a triple strand work of magnificence that includes two strands of Amethysts’ cradling one strand of Quartz Crystal. Each stone is separated by a delicate band of Bali Silver, adding to the mystery.

The length of the top strand is 21.5, and the bottom strand length is 24.5, affording the perfect three stand drape. The clasp has an additional one inch extender should you desire a bit more length.

Now, onto history, myth, legend and lore!

Xanadu

Famed for its appearances in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem “Kublai Khan” and the films Citizen Kane and Grease, “Xanadu” denotes a kind of earthly paradise, much like Shangri-la or Utopia. The name comes from the Mongolian summer palace used by leader Genghis Khan and his descendents, called Shangdu in Chinese. The Italian traveler Marco Polo visited in 12752, and has account introduced the word into several European languages, including English.

Amethyst

The origins of amethyst name and even explanation for some of its healing properties have been founded in the Greek mythology surrounding this semi-precious stone. Amethyst's origin resides with the god Dionysus (Bacchus) and the goddess Diana. Dionysus, the god of wine, celebration, intoxication and joviality, found insult by a mortal who had refused him acknowledgement. Enraged with anger Dionysus vowed to unleash his fury upon all mortals who did not partake in his gifts of wine and drunkenness. He immediately spotted a young maiden named Amethyst who was pure and unfamiliar with being intoxicated. The unsuspecting young virgin, who was on her way to pay homage to the goddess Diana, was detained by the wrathful god. Dionysus summoned two fiercely voracious tigers to devour the youth and sat back with his wine to watch. Amethyst cried out to Diana. When Diana saw what was about to transpire she quickly transformed the young mortal into a glimmering pure white stone (quartz) to protect her from the vicious wrath of Dionysus. Moved with pity Dionysus realized the ruthlessness of his actions and began to weep with sorrow. As the tears dripped into his goblet Dionysus collapsed and the tear-tainted wine ran out onto the stone from the tipped cup. The white stone then absorbed the color from the wine creating the stone now called amethyst.

Quartz

Nearly every ancient culture has revered Quartz. The ancients believed Quartz was actually water from the heavens that was frozen into eternal ice by the gods. In fact, the word "crystal" derives from the Greek word "krystallos" meaning "ice". Oceanic and Australian shamans spoke of Quartz as "a stone of light broken off from the celestial throne".

The Aborigines used the crystals to invoke rain, as did certain Native American tribes. In Australian Aboriginal mythology, Quartz is the most common substance identified with their mystical substance called "maban". Maban is said to be the material from which wise men (called karadjis) obtain their magical powers. During initiation ceremonies, maban is spiritually "inserted" into the body of the apprentice by the karadji.

The Australian sky god, Daramulun, was long portrayed through art and sculpture as having a mouth full of Quartz, a huge phallus, and carrying a stone axe.

In the creation myths of the ancient Japanese it was believed that Quartz materialized through the breath of the venerated White Dragon. As such, Quartz was regarded as the perfect jewel and came to symbolize perfection or the pursuit thereof. Quartz graced their temples and was also found throughout the temples of the ancient Chinese, Mayans, Aztecs, and many other earlier civilizations situated around the globe.

Ancient Celtic practices, said to restore and maintain health, were to place nine small Quartz crystals in water, boil it, cool it, and then drink the enhanced water for nine consecutive days.

Clear Quartz polished into spheres have long been used as crystal balls for divination purposes. It has been labeled the "Universal Crystal" due to its diversity and abundance of intense metaphysical properties. Clear Quartz is a secondary birthstone for Libra.
