This weeks Q & A:
  How often should I have my Jewelry inspected?

( See Internet Specials page for the answer )

Traditional Birthstone for February is the Amethyst

From refreshing lilac to ripe plum, the Amethyst demonstrates the drama and excitement of the color purple.
Because of its depth and richness, the Amethyst has been associated to intense emotion.  It’s for that reason, the
legend of its origin is fitting, a tale of revenge, devotion and immortal remorse.  Legends tell the story of Dionysus the Greek God
of wine, who was insulted one day by a mortal.  Enraged' he called forth vicious tigers to exact revenge on the next mortal
who would cross his path.  The unfortunate maiden Amethyst on her way to pay tribute to the Goddess Diana was the unlucky
traveler.  The innocent girl suddenly found herself face-to-face with the tiger of the vengeful God.
In order to save her from the beasts, Diana turned Amethyst into a statue of pure crystalline quartz.  The crystalline maiden was
so beautiful that Dionysus, in sorrow and remorse, wept tears of rich wine over the statue.  His tears stained the quartz purple,
thus creating the poetic gem that still bears her name.  Origins of the name while sadly beautiful, Amethyst exhibits
happier connotations in modern society.  The gem is used to celebrate February birthdays as well as the fourth,
sixth and ninth wedding anniversaries.

What ever the reason, the Amethyst is always fabulous fashion choices.
