Amethyst is the birthstone for February, and was worn by the ancient Egyptians as a protective stone, whereas the Greeks used it for millennia to protect against drunkeness! It is said to be a calming and meditative stone, and can help to bring about calm, balance and patience. A very healing stone that can bring about a sense of peace, and even soothe loss and grief, bringing intuition and assimilation. A very spiritual stone.
