Amethyst, February’s birthstone, is a very popular gemstone – both for its beauty and for its properties. In crystal healing, amethyst is believed to ease pain, reduce stress, strengthen the immune system and be good for the heart, skin, lungs, headaches, arthritis and insomnia. Known as “nature’s tranquilizer”, it is also said to bring contentment, calm and peace and to help remove bad habits.
