Amethyst is the birthstone for February. The essence of the color purple, its color can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple. Amethyst has been a prized gem for centuries and is included in royal collections all over the world, from ancient Egypt to the British crown jewels. It was believed to prevent intoxication and promote clear thinking—amethystos translates to “not drunk” in ancient Greek. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst quickens intelligence and gets rid of evil thoughts.
