Happy February!! February is an awesome month, because that means the Tucson Gem Show is here! Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
“One of the most popular minerals for collectors, Amethyst, derives its beautiful color from traces of iron. Amethyst is purple quartz that had been a symbol of royalty in the Middle Ages for the English who incorporated the stone into items they wore. The name “amethyst” comes from Greek and means “not drunken”, which helps to explain why it is believed that alcoholics should possess it to keep them from having a drink.”

I live in Tucson, Arizona and I have the anxiety inducing pleasure of driving past The Boneyard at Davis-Monthan. ACRES of planes!!!! Two years ago the military sent 12 or so brand new cargo planes straight to DM because we don’t need them. Why were they purchased in the first place?
