It’s February, which means there are a whole lot of February birthdays coming up! The birthstone for February is amethyst.

Amethyst is the most prized and valuable variety of quartz. It’s well-known for its purple color which is caused by iron and manganese. Amethyst can also be green in color.

Amethyst is very popular with mineral and jewelry collectors. It used to be as valuable as rubies and sapphires until a huge amethyst deposit was discovered in the 1800s, making it much more common.  The name “amethyst” comes from the Greek word for “not drunken”. The ancient Greeks believed that drinking from an amethyst goblet would prevent them from getting drunk.

Amethyst naturally occurs in huge crystals. Becasue of this, gemstones in all sizes can be found. Amethyst is mined worldwide, but stones that come from certain areas have certain characteristics. For example, amethyst from Uruguay and Arizona usually have a more purple-blue color, amethyst from Russia is usually more red, and amethyst with deeper colors usually come from Africa.
