Amethyst is widely known as the birthstone for the month of February and is a member of the Quartz variety. This stone is considered to be a highly popular gemstone that is commonly utilized in jewelry and décor. Its popularity is thanks to amethyst being the 2nd widest available mineral on planet Earth.
The name amethyst stems from the Greek word “amethystos” which translates to the term “not intoxicated.” The name is derived from the Greek myth where Dionysus the god of wine was given an amethyst by titan Rhea in order to protect him. From this myth came the belief that amethyst contained the power to prevent one from becoming intoxicated when drinking.
