Amethyst has been cherished throughout history for its mythical powers. The lure of the Amethyst was valued at times as much as a Diamond. It was called the Gem of Fire, a precious stone, fierce and mystical.
The dazzling purple to violet hues of Amethyst, which is a form of quartz, is owed to gamma irradiation and traces of iron. Amethyst immerses the wearer in serenity, elevating passion, strengthening the imagination. It is the gem of focus and success–for travelers, it was worn as a protection from misadventure.
It is the stone of the dreamer, attracting divine energy, bringing clarity and cleansing the aura of negativity.
Amethyst is the birthstone of February.
