Amethyst is the birthstone for February. With a hardness of 7, it has the highest iron content of any quartz, giving it a colour varying from a delicate orchid to a glorious violet. The world’s major amethyst occurrences are in Brazil, Uruguay and Africa. In Canada, amethyst is found in Thunder Bay, Ontario and is the official stone of that province.
The name amethyst is from the Greek ‘amethystos’ meaning ‘not drunken.’ The Greeks believed that amethyst prevents or cures intoxication and enhances the inner energy of its owner.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel. It refers to the energy centers found in the body. Most Eastern traditions describe seven major Chakras positioned along the midline of the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
