Amethyst
February Birthstone

Amethyst is one of the most popular and affordable gemstone of all time! Dating back to Pre-Roman Era, the Greeks believed that adorning themselves with amethysts would prevent intoxication.

Amethyst is found in Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, Zambia, and many more places around the world. It is part of the quartz family, which is one of the most abundant minerals on the planet. Quartz is piezoelectric (able to create an oscillating electric frequency), which is vital to keeping time in all quartz -based watches and electronics.

Amethysts have a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale, which ranges from 1 to 10 (softest to hardest). Its colors range from pale to dark violet. The most sought-after colors are an intense deep violet, free of inclusions and color zoning, and a more transparent medium purple. The highest quality contains a red flash through the gemstone.
