On this page, AMETHYST in a full range of purples, from lightest lavender to the deepest purple.

 

AMETHYST

From the deepest opaque and regal purple, to light lilac and the palest translucent shades of mauve and lavender – amethysts often show a bluish or reddish-purple tinge when viewed from different angles. The presence of manganese in clear quartz is what gives this stone its purple color, while traces of iron give the color its depth. The more iron, the deeper the purple, sometimes showing a flash of red in the sunlight. Very pale or Cape Amethysts may also show yellowish-to-beige tones and crystalline inclusions. Amethyst deposits are found in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia, Uruguay, Burma, India, Canada, Mexico, Namibia, Russia, Sri Lanka, and in the United States (Arizona). Another type of amethyst is called Chevron Amethyst. This natural gemstone is composed of cape to dark amethyst and white quartz in a striped, chevron-like pattern. It is also named Dog Teeth Amethyst because of its resemblance to a flower the Dog Tooth Violet. Miriam thinks the natural pattern of Chevron Amethyst looks more like lightning strikes!
