The amethyst is the birthstone for February and at John Wallick Jewelers, in Sun City, Arizona, near Phoenix, AZ we carry beautiful violet amethysts and custom amethyst jewelry.
The amethyst is a violet variety of quartz, commonly ranging from a pink hue to a deep purple but there are red and blue varieties as well. It gets its color from both irradiation and iron impurities.
Did You Know?
The amethyst is known as the “sobriety stone”. The name amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek word “a methustos” which translates in English to “not intoxicated” or “not drunken”. It was believed that the amethyst stone could protect its bearer from drunkenness and intoxication.
The Psychic Stone
The amethyst is also well regarded in the spiritual realm to psychics as it is thought to increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It is thought to be able to make a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also utilized for meditation and lucid dreaming.
