Amethyst Crystal - Large
Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February.
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz and owes its violet colour to irradiation, impurities of iron and in some cases other transition metals, and the presence of other trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.
Amethyst occurs in primary hues from a light pinkish violet colour to a deep purple colour. Amethyst may exhibit one or both secondary hues, red and blue.
The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
