History: It is the birthstone for February. There myths which attribute certain powers to the stone. The name amethyst is from the Ancient Greek words a- (not) and methustos (intoxicated). The Greeks and Romans would make mugs from an amethyst cluster with the belief that it would prevent them from becoming drunk. Another legend is that it would protect the wearer from harm, but only if they showed bravery so it became a popular stone for soldiers. In ancient times it was associated with the Hebrew religion as a symbol of the Spirit of God. During the Renaissance the meaning changed to humility and modesty.
Healing properties: Some believe that it is a calming stone and that the healing properties are of the blood and breathing. Amethyst cleanses the blood, helping substance abuse and fevers and the calming effect helps breathing.
