Information: The name Amethyst is derived from the Greek word Amethystos that means sober or not intoxicated. Amethyst was often worn by the Ancient Greeks and Romans in an effort to ward off the effects of too much wine. Amethyst is one of the traditional birthstones for February. Amethyst is also a traditional gemstone for celebrating the 4th and 6th years of marriage.
Amethyst is a variety of Quartz and is often purple in color. This purple is a beautiful blend of violet and blue and is considered a royal color. As such, Amethyst has been popular throughout history. Amethysts are found in the British Crown Jewels and were a favorite of Catherine the Great as well as with ancient Egyptian royalty. Amethyst measures a respectable 7.0 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness.
Colors: Amethyst is found in all shades of purple and sometimes in blue, green, gray, violet and almost all shades in between.
Important Note about Color: The actual color and lightness or darkness of the stone will vary from what is displayed on your monitor. There are many reasons that can cause this visual situation, One of the more important reason is the difference between transmitted light color (such as light shining through a gemstone), color generation simulations and adjustments (such as your monitor) and reflected light (light bouncing off objects). Add to this each individual’s personal color sensitivities along with variances in ambient (surrounding) light sources used when the photo was taken as well as those where you are looking at the stone. You should expect that the actual item shading and coloring will vary from what you see on any monitor or printed piece.
Sources: Amethyst is found worldwide. Notable modern sources for Amethyst include Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, India, Madagascar, Namibia, Russia, Sri Lanka, Uruguay, the United States of America and Zambia.
