Amethyst is the traditional birthstone of February.
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz, that has been a sought after stone for many years. The ancient Greeks and Romans held strong belief that Amethyst could prevent intoxication, and therefore made jewelry and chalices with that intention.
Amethyst is an immensely popular stone for healing because of its many benefits; it helps individuals understand themselves on a deeper level, connect to their spirituality, and break bad habits. Carry Amethyst when feeling disconnected to personal believes and values on a regular basis, or during a time period when breaking bad habits is problematic.
