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.
