Interesting Information About Amethyst:

Amethyst is the purple variety of the quartz mineral species, which often forms large, six-sided crystals.  It’s the gem that’s most commonly associated with the color purple, even though there are other purple gems such as sapphire and tanzanite. Its purple color can be cool and bluish, or a reddish purple that’s sometimes referred to as “raspberry.” It can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple, and from brownish to vivid. 

Amethyst is the birthstone for February and one of the emblems of the twelve apostles.  Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages. It was once considered equal in value to ruby, emerald, and sapphire. It’s no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops as well as the coronation regalia of British royalty. In demand for jewelry at all price points; amethyst is beautiful enough for crown jewels, yet affordable enough for class rings.
