Formed by Mother Earth: Amethyst is the world's most popular purple gem. It is the purple color variety of quartz and is the birthstone for those born in February. Small amounts of amethyst are found at many locations throughout the world in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. Amethyst forms its purple hues when trace amounts of iron are incorporated into a growing quartz crystal. After crystallization, gamma rays, emitted by radioactive materials within the host rock, irradiate the iron to produce the purple color.
