Amethyst Gemstone - February Birthstone - Pices Stone

The most highly valued type of Quartz, particularly for its deep violet/purple colors. It is often found as large crystals and/or in geodes. Typically the deepest color is from the end/tips of crystals.

Amethyst was valued in ancient times, especially by the Greeks for its mythical properties for warding off the effects of alcohol, goblets were even fashioned from it in the belief they would stave off drunkeness.

Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February, and can be used as a wedding anniversary stone to celebrate 4,6 and/or 17 years of marriage.

Amethyst is the Zodiac stone for Pisces and is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘power’.

 

 

The Violet/Purple in Amethyst comes from the presence of iron in its chemical composition.
