Amethyst is a semi-precious stone and violet variety of quartz. It is the birthstone for February. The name comes from the Greek word amethystos which means intoxicate. This references the belief that the wearer of the stone was protected from drunkenness. The best varieties of amethyst can be found in Siberia, Sri Lanka, Brazil and the Far East.
