*805 Amethyst Birthstone Of February - Poem by John Knight

Hexagonal sweet Amethyst
Lilac - violet - deep rich purple
Shades from almost black to clear white
Worn by troops in Ancient Egypt
Talisman - protects in the fight
Jewels worn by Holy Bishops
Beads and rings - to sin resist
Hexagonal sweet Amethyst

Amethyst can change its lustre
When near poison it is brought
Also warned of hidden danger
Protecting King and all His Court.
Amethyst the gem for Lovers
St Valentine would always wear
Amethyst - a heart shaped cluster
Amethyst can change its lustre.

Amethyst - February's gem
Aquarius is star sign link
Pain relief and general healing
It clears the mind and helps you think.
Found in Gambia and Brazil and..........
Imparts inner strength and courage
Strengthens heart and strengthens will
Amethyst - February's gem.

Mauve is colour most emotional
Hexagonal sweet Amethyst
Amethyst can change its lustre
February's gem is Amethyst
Amethyst is gem February's
Lustre its change can Amethyst
Amethyst sweet hexagonal
Emotional most colour is mauve.
