Amethyst has been the most prized member of the quartz family for centuries. Early Greek legends, associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine (because of its wine-purple color). Other legends led to beliefs that amethyst gems kept their wearers clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in their business affairs. It’s no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops and the coronation regalia of British royalty.
Russia was once the main source of amethyst, but near the turn of the twentieth century, new deposits were discovered in South America. After that, it became more widely available, but no less treasured. Amethyst comes in a range of sizes, and the color selection ranges from the palest lilac to rich purple.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
