Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz, among the most popular semiprecious stones. Deeper purples are most highly prized, especially those with a little bit of red flash in the light. Amethysts are found all over the world, but most of the fine material on the market comes from Brazil. The top specimens today come from Siberia. Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
