Amethyst is the birthstone for February. It is a purple variety of quartz, with a range in hues. It is often found in Brazil, as well as Bolivia, Mexico, Canada, Africa, Russia, and the United States.
Amethyst has a rich history. In Europe, neolithic people used it as early as 25,000 BCE. Ancient Egyptians used it to create jewelry and beads. In other cultures, it has been seen as a symbol of royalty and status, and has been used in crowns and rings.
Its name means "not drunken" in Greek, due to an ancient myth. An angry god turned a girl into a clear crystal as revenge. Then in a regretful state, he poured grape juice over her as an apologetic offer, which gave her the purple color.
Approximately 1.4” long x .6” wide.
