Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. While today amethyst is classified as a semi-precious gemstone, historically, it has been valued en par with diamonds and rubies.. Traditionally, amethyst is known as the birthstone of February. It is associated with contentment and calmness.

Interestingly, the name comes from the Ancient Greek "amethustos," meaning not intoxicated. It was believed to protect people from drunkenness!
