February Birthstone Ceramic Piggy Bank. The Amethyst is the birthstone of February. A birthstone is a gemstone that symbolizes a month of birth. Some believe that those who are born in February have sincerity and peace of mind, freedom from passion and from care, Amethyst is one of the most popular gemstones, and has been considered valuable since ancient times. Its name derives from the Greek "amethystos", which means "not drunken", as Amethyst in antiquity was thought to ward off drunkenness. Amethyst was once highly regarded among the precious gemstones like Ruby and Emerals but discoveries of huge Amethyst deposits since the 1800's have made Amethyst fairly inexpensive and very obtainable. Amethyst colors range from light to dark purple, and the transparent deep purple colors are the most highly regarded.
