Amethysts are held in high regard in spiritual circles. The stone can help you apply your intellectual powers in challenging situations and think more clearly to make better choices. It empowers its bearers to embrace new ideas and to put their thoughts into action. Amethyst is the February birthstone and 6th wedding anniversary gemstone.
In Chinese culture, the swallow represents feminine dignity + loveliness. A pair of mated swallows represent devotion and marital tenderness.
