These purple quartz crystals are most often seen in the form of cut gemstones, as amethyst is the popular birthstone for February. Its lavender to deep purple color is mainly due to irradiation and impurities of iron. Amethyst also forms as stalactites, which produce beautiful “rosettes” when cut into cross-sections. As a healing stone, amethyst is known as the “gem of transformation”, a powerful energizer which can be used to bring about physical, emotional, and spiritual change. Its history dates back to ancient Greece, where it was used to cure intoxication, clear the head, sharpen the intellect, and render its users shrewd in business matters. Amethyst is found worldwide, but its primary sources are Brazil and Uruguay.
