Amethyst is Macrocrystalline quartz and is one of the best selling gemstones in the world. Amethyst has also been used to encourage celibacy, erase evil thoughts and keep one grounded. Amethyst beads can vary in color from shades of red-violet to purple, from a milky color to green. Heating Amethyst can turn it yellow, brown, and no color at all. Amethysts are commonly listed as the birthstone for those born in February.
