Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Ancient Greek a- ("not") and methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief held in Ancient Greece that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness.

The purple colour in amethyst is due to irradiation of iron ions present as impurities in quartz (SiO2). Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for February.
