There has been a birthstone associated which each month out of the year for centuries, with birthstones holding a special place in the hearts of many. A lot of people seek out handmade jewelry depicting their birthstone or the birthstones of their loved ones. For February, the birthstone is Amethyst, a gorgeous purple variety of quartz that is very popular in different styles of jewelry. Amethyst can be found all over the world, but historically they were often found in Russia and made their way into many pieces of royal European jewelry. Now, Amethyst is most often sourced from Brazil, but it also comes from Zambia quite often, in addition to other areas. Amethyst has long been associated with numerous religions, legends, myths and cultures, and it has been said to give its wearer quick wits and a clear head.
