In Finland, February is called "Helmikuu", Helmi meaning "pearl";
from the pearl-like drops of frozen moisture that forms on tree branches in midwinter.

"Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream."
- Barbara Winkler
Legendary second king of Rome after Romulus, Numa Pompilius added January and February to the calendar in 713 BC and February remained the last month of the year until 450 BC.
Amethyst, the stone for February. (As adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912)
Amethyst derives from "améthystos" which is Greek for "not intoxicated".
The pictured story above is from the poem "L'Amethyste, ou les Amours de Bacchus et d'Amethyste" by Remy Belleau (1528–1577) which may have been based on the Egyptian's use for the stone.
Leonardo Da Vinci claimed amethyst could "dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence."
In Tibet, amethyst is regarded a sacred gemstone.
Used by practitioners of the craft for:
strengthening the mind (memory, meditation, eg.)
