The birthstone for the month of February, amethyst has been considered a prized gem for centuries.
A favorite among royals, bishops and saints, the word amethyst derives from the Greek word amethustos, meaning sober. It was said that wearing amethyst could prevent a person from getting excessively drunk and would keep the wearer's mind still and sober.
Throughout history, amethyst was thought to have many different attributes -- all of them good -- including controlling evil thoughts, strengthen intelligence, protect from contagious diseases, encourage calm, bravery and contemplation and to bring forth the highest and purest aspirations of human kind.

Amethyst has a few faint surface abrasions that are consistent with age and wear. It also has a natural inclusion that runs 3/4 of the way across the inside of the stone. This is naturally forming and not a defect. Priced accordingly.
