Amethyst Rings: Properties

Although a fairly common and widely known mineral, top quality amethysts are actually rare. The amethyst has a broad range of shades of its home color of purple. The pale, rather pinkish amethyst is known as The Rose of France. Although certainly attractive, is not actually in great demand. By far the most desirable variety of amethyst is the intense violet stone with red firings. Although mined in Brazil and Uruguay, it is found notably in the Ekaterinburg vicinity of Russia and is commonly referred to as Siberian amethyst.

The color is due to the presence of iron, aluminum and manganese. Different percentages of the elements along with natural radioactive radiation determine the intensity of the shade. Interestingly, there is a naturally occurring variation of the amethyst called the ametrine, which is bi-colored purple and yellow.

Although the amethyst is reasonably hard, at 7 on Moh’s Scale, care should be taken. For instance, the amethyst should not be worn sunbathing, since they are prone to lose color. Also sudden changes in temperature have been known to be detrimental to the amethyst.
