Amethyst/Citrine

I

am Quartz. In my abundance, I am found in every corner of the earth. in my purest form, I am colorless, but I am most prized for my purple and golden varieties.

As a purple gemstone, I am known as Amethyst, and I was treasured by the Roman gods as a talisman to ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus.

Amethyst, the traditional birthstone for the month of February, is available in small and large sizes, although as with all gemstones, very large sizes in rich, deep colors have always been rare. Designers celebrate amethyst as the ideal choice for jewelry because of its regal color, variety of sizes and shapes, affordability and wide tonal range from light to dark purple.

Brazil is the primary source of amethyst, and Zambia is a significant source as well.

Darker hues of amethyst are rarely enhanced to perfect their color, although some varieties do respond well to heat enhancement.
