Birthstone of the Month - Amethyst
Amethyst, the birthstone of February, is a gorgeous violet quartz. From the Ancient Greek ἀ a- ("not") and μέθυστος methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness, Amethysts have shown up throughout history. While the Greeks and Romans thought they kept the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted, during the Middle Ages, the English used them to decorate their regalia and symbolize royalty, and medieval soldiers wore them as amulets of protection in battle, believing them to heal people and keep them cool headed.
Although Amethysts are most frequently mined in Siberia, Sri Lanka, Brazil and Zambia, they can found in every corner of the earth, including the United States and Canada. They are a relatively hard stone, 7 on the Mohs scale, which makes them easy to wear daily. However, they should not be worn when sunbathing, be exposed to extreme heat or put under a black light, as they are sensitive to heat and could change or lose their color.
