Amethyst

Amethysts are among the most elegant and exquisite gemstones, suitable for all styles of jewellery and engagement rings

Amethyst

Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The gemstone name comes from Ancient Greek for not intoxicated (ἀ μέθυστος a-méthystos) and it was believed that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness.

The Amethyst is a semiprecious purple stone and its exquisite violet colour comes from irradiation, iron and the presence of trace elements which combine to create a complex crystal lattice substitution.
