What is the birthstone for Aquarius?

The Zodiac sign of Aquarius (those born between 21st January - 20th February) responds to the beautiful gemstone amethyst, as well as garnet. It’s said that the amethyst is essential to ground an Aquarius, as it calms anxiety and dispels anger as well as promoting peacefulness.
