Amethyst

February's Gemstone is Amethyst

This February birthstone is one the most popular gemstones today. Its radiate violet-purple color makes it one of the most desirable members of the quartz family.

The name is derived from the word amethustos, a Greek word that means not drunken. The legend behind this is that one who drinks wine from the amethystine cup would not become drunk.
Amethysts were traditional worn in the Russian and English crown jewels. The Roman Catholic Church extensively uses the stone today.

Amethyst·s color ranges from a light violet to a dark red-purple. We use the darker colored amethyst.
