February's birthstone is Amethyst

Amethyst is a purple variety of the mineral quartz.
The name Amethyst comes from the Greek and means ‘Not drunken’, the name might come from the belief that Amethyst would ward off the effects of alcohol, although most likely it refers to the wine like color of the stone.

This popular gemstone is popular for its color and nice crystal shapes that produce a wonderful purple closter, amethyst is also the Zodiac stone for the zodiac sign of Pisces.
