Amethyst is the February birthstone and the 6th and 17th anniversary stones. It is the purple variety of Quartz. Quartz is a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen, with a chemical composition of SiO2. All other varieties of Quartz, such as yellow Citrine, green Praisolite, or pink Rose Quartz are colored due to tiny inclusions in the silica. The gorgeous purple color of Amethyst is due to inclusions of iron in the crystal structure.
Amethyst is found all over the world and is one of the world's most popular gemstones. Amethyst has been beloved in fine jewelry for thousands of years from fine crown jewels worn by royalty to affordable we can wear every day!
