February Birthstone: Amethyst

 Amethyst is the birthstone for February.  Amethyst is a quartz that spans the purple spectrum with hues ranging from darkest purple to pale lilac.  Ancient Greeks and Romans believed this stone would protect the wearer from drunkenness and  promote a balanced mind.  In the middle ages amethyst was associated with royalty.  Amethyst was also worn by the clergy as the stone represented a deity for Christ. Now amethyst is associated with peace, stability and courage.
