Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used
in jewelry. The name comes from the ancient
Greek a- (“not”) and (“intoxicated”), a reference
to the belief that the stone protected its owner
from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore
amethyst and made drinking vessels decorated
with it in the belief that it would prevent
intoxication. It is one of several forms of quartz.
Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the
traditional birthstone for February born people.
