Awesome Amethyst

Once thought to be as precious as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, and lauded for their magical properties in preventing drunkenness, amethysts have quite the history. In current times, this purple variety of quartz is February's traditional birthstone and ranges in hue from barely there purple whispers to punchy royal purple. With a stone so versatile, there's no limit to how to wear amethyst jewelry.
