Today marks the beginning of a new month, which means it’s time for a new birthstone to take reign. Amethyst, the birthstone for February, is a type of quartz found in a range of colors from deep violets and reds to lighter shades of lilac. Not only is it stunning raw or polished, but the myths behind the stone are equally as cool. It’s a meditative stone that is said to promote calmness, peace, and balance, and has been said to enhance one’s psychic abilities and intuition. It was also a favorite of the ancient Greeks, used to protect themselves from drunkenness (seriously).
