Amethysts are the purple variety of quartz and are found in all shades of purple, from lilac to indigo. The gemstone was considered extremely valuable in olden times and was used in jewelry and adornment for years.

Today, the stone is considered the birthstone of February and still remains one of the most coveted and popular gemstones. Not only that, but amethysts are also believed to possess healing powers and are widely recognized as powerful stones in the world of alternative medicine.
