Interesting Facts About Amethyst....
The word amethyst comes from the Greek for "not" and "intoxicated" (a-methustos), because it was believed that to wear the stone would protect the owner from drunkenness (potentially a lifesaver over the festive period!). It is also supposed to prevent the wearer from being seduced against their will.
Amethyst is the gemstone for February and is a crystal quartz. Its distinctive violet/purple colour was originally attributed to the presence of manganese, but recent studies have shown that it may in fact be due to the iron and aluminium content. When it is exposed to heat, amethyst becomes yellow.
On the Mohs' scale, it has a hardness of 7 and has moderate light refraction. These stones can actually lose their colour so should not be exposed to continuous harsh light, such as during sunbathing, or to extreme temperatures. Amethyst are abundant and found all over the world, although the main sources are Brazil, Uruguay and Madagascar.
