Amethyst is the birthstone for those born in February. Amethyst was as expensive as ruby and emerald until the 19th Century, when Brazil's large deposits were discovered. It was believed to prevent intoxication -- amethystos means "not drunk" in ancient Greek. Today, as the most valued quartz variety, amethyst is in demand for designer pieces and mass-market jewelry alike, and its purple to pastel hues retain wide consumer appeal.
