GEMMOLOGY FACTS: AMETHYST
Amethyst is a purple variety of Quartz which is the largest Gemstone family. Its sisters are Rose Quartz, Citrine, Prasiolite and Smokey Quartz, just to name a few.
Amethyst’s colour comes from iron and grows in a high temperature and a high-pressure environment. Amethyst varies in shade from very pale lavender to intense purple. The colour is dictated by the level of iron within each Stone.
This Gem can occur in a range of shapes and colours and can be found with large natural points or polished into smooth shapes. Until the beginning of the 20th Century, Amethyst was quite rare and costly.
It was as expensive as Ruby and Emeralds. You may spot Amethyst in antique Jewellery or Royal Jewels, including the British Royal Family Crown Jewels, which you can view at the Tower of London.
Today it is one of the most popular Quartz varieties and is in high demand for designer pieces. Its purple hues make it so popular within the mass market
