AMETHYST is the birthstone for the month of February. The name amethyst is from the Greek "amethystos" meaning " not drunken" because the ancient Greeks believed drinking from an amethyst cup would prevent intoxication.
"ANTHILL" GARNET The Arizona Garnet portrays the same deep red hues similar to some of the finest rubies in the world. The Arizona Garnet has one of the most unique mining crews in the world... ANTS! These little industrious workers dig underground tunnels and, in the process, push dirt and garnet to the surface forming anthills. The garnet is then picked up by the Navajo indians. This is a stunning stone to add to your gemstone collection.
