Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Koine Greek αμέθυστος amethystos from α- a-, "not" and μεθύσκω (Ancient Greek) methysko / μεθώ metho (Modern Greek), "intoxicate", a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
Amethyst is a semiprecious stone that is often used in jewelry and is the traditional birthstone for February.
Got my item just fine. However one thing to note, this seller says NY, USA, but they shipped the stone from Thailand. Not a big deal as I still received my item, but a bit misleading. Still A+ and would consider buying from them again.
