About Amethyst: Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Ancient Geek “methustos” ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkeness; the ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. Amethyst is renowned for bringing a sense of calm and clarity to our chaotic world.
About Aquamarine: Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family and ranges in color from an almost colorless pale blue to blue-green or teal.
