The month of February is fabulous with colors of royalty: Amethyst.
A popular gemstone, Amethyst is a purple hued Quartz mineral.
The unique and intense color of purple has been known to adorn nobility; early monarchs were enthralled with Amethyst due to this. Since purple dyes were scarce and pricey back in the day, Purple was reserved for those who could afford such luxuries (ie, Royalty). Naturally occurring Amethyst gems were used to in the crowns, scepters and jewelry of Kings and Queens.
Here are some of my lovely creations crafted with February's finest:
