If your birthday month is February you may already know the February birthstone color is Amethyst. While February is cold and wintry, this lovely birthstone color is warm and regal. A member of the quartz family, Amethyst forms in a variety of purple shades from the lightest lilac to the darkest plum. Amethyst is best recognized by a medium purple tone. This classic gem has a wonderful tone that works well for any accessory. So, this February, why not show off a little of that royal February birthstone color this month - even if it isn't your birthday?
1. Curious Contacts
Ok, I was a little taken aback when I first saw Amethyst contacts, but then they grew on me. Amethyst contacts remind me of Daenerys Targaryen's "violet" eyes as described in the A Game of Thrones book series. The associated gemstone qualities also remind me of that character and strong women: royalty, courage, creativity, strength, and self-esteem. If you want a bit of change from your regular eye color, consider Amethyst contacts. Wearing the February birthstone color in this way will surely draw attention to your eyes.
