Amethyst is a type of quartz known for its purple hue, and found most commonly in Uruguay and Brazil. It is believed by some to improve cognitive function as well as promote a calm, meditative mood when worn or handled, and to protect from nightmares if placed under one’s pillow while sleeping. It is traditionally considered the birthstone of the month of February.
