Healing Amethyst Stone Definition
The name “amethyst” comes from the Greek word “amethystos” which means “not intoxicated.” Why? Ancient Greeks believed that amethysts prevented people from getting drunk and would often wear the jewels as rings while serving alcohol.
In the zodiac, amethyst is associated with Pisces, the second constellation for February; Aquarius is the first. For this reason, amethyst is the birthstone for those born between February and March 20th respectively. It makes a great gift for anyone born around this time because Pisces is associated with empathy and resilience.
