Amethyst


Amethyst is a variety of Quartz (SiO2). Its clear purple to bluish violet color is due to manganese and iron Fe3+. In the antiquity, it was sought for its beauty as well as for supposed magic healing powers. Today Amethyst is popular and intensively used in jewellery (rings, pendants etc), as the February birthstone and by mineral enthusiasts around the world. It is found in many countries such as Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Canada, Namibia. Madagascar, Sri Lanka, etc. Mineral collectors are always in search of the best specimens which are dark in color and well crystallized.

Brazil is the most prolific producer of this mineral and the local variety exhibits a medium violet color. It is generally occurring in geodes some of which can measure up to one meter or more in length. Amethyst from Uruguay originates predominantly from the Artigas department close to Brazil. They are considered as the best quality in the world due to their deep hue. They are also found in geodes rather small compared to the ones in Brazil. Read More...
