Amethyst has been a prized gem for centuries. It is the birthstone for Pisces and the month of February, and the gemstone for the 6th anniversary of marriage. The stone is included in royal collections all over the world, from ancient Egypt to the British crown jewels.
The name comes from Ancient greek amethystos, literally translating as “not intoxicated”, referencing the belief of long ago that this gemstone protected the wearer from drunkenness and overindulgence. The Greeks wore amethyst jewellery and made beautiful drinking vessels embellished with amethyst believing it was a strong antidote to alcohol intoxication… Wearing ANAKAO paradigm bracelet will ensure not only that you are wearing the most eye-catching jewel, but also that you stay well behaved throughout the night.
