Amethyst…the beautiful birthstone of February!
Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. I’ve always known it to be the stone of . . .’drunks and fools’ 🙂
While not suitable as a ‘fire in place’ stone, for metal clay work, it’s certainly awesome post fire.
“Amethyst, the gemstone believed by ancient Greeks and Romans to ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus, also is said to keep the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted. Throughout history, the gemstone has been associated with many myths, legends, religions, and numerous cultures.” http://www.americangemsociety.org/february-birthstone
Amethyst were found in Russia and featured in royal jewelry. Brazil is the primary source, these days, and it is also found in Zambia.

“Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace.
Emotionally, amethyst is used in crystal healing to help heal personal losses and grief, bringing one gently past. Amethyst has a gently sedative energy that can promote peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. It also is said to bring emotional stability and inner strength. This stability and strength not only helps one hold firm in one’s life, but it can enhance flexibility and cooperation. To be flexible at need is a sure sign of strength.” http://www.meanings.crystalsandjewelry.com/amethyst/
