Amethyst is the birthstone for February. It is a gemstone associated with royalty since purple was the color most difficult and costly to produce anciently. It is named for the Greek mythological maiden, Amethyst.  Amethyst was said to been worn by Cleopatra and St. Valentine and is the gemstone of Catholic bishops.  Hues of amethyst range from deep, rich purple to lavender.  The world sources for amethyst are Brazil, Namibia, Uruguay, Zambia, Argentina, and Australia.

Pictured are some of my jewelry designs using a little touch of amethyst.
