Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewellery. The hardness of the mineral is the same as quartz, thus it is suitable for use in jewellery. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February.
Prized for its beauty and its legendary energies, amethyst is believed to possess the power to calm anger, relieve pain or sorrow and promote feelings of peace. Amethyst, a member of quartz, is believed to have the ability to sooth an overactive mind and brings a sense of serenity to those who are frazzled by overwork.
Amethyst is an ideal stone to enhance one's physical environment. Placing one or more amethysts at home or meditation area may make a person feel that he or she is protected and thus, develops the sense of security.
