While the Greeks believed in the healing qualities of amethysts, they weren't the only European country to do so. Many cultures throughout the world were drawn to the magic of this mesmerizing, mystical gem.

Whether it was a connection with spirituality, wine consumption, or royal lineage, amethysts have held their own in folklore, religion, and history.

Christianity: The spiritual connotation of the semi-precious stone is often compared with Christ. The deep purple color is believed to symbolize Christ's agony in the crucifixion.

Judaism: the Hebrew word for amethyst, "ahlamah", translates to "dream stone". Jews believed the gem caused powerful dreams. Amethyst also symbolized one of the 12 Tribes of Israel and adorned the breastplate of the high priest, Aaron.

Amethyst Origin

Amethyst crystals are found on each continent with the biggest deposits located in South America. Second largest deposits are located in North America and Africa. The biggest producer country is Brazil which processes over three thousand tons per year.


Amethyst stone is formed inside the hollow voids of the rock called geodes. There are many ways geodes form including volcanic origin which is a result of lava encapsulating minerals rich in silicon dioxide that slowly crystallized into formations such as amethyst.

Most notable locations

  • Vera Cruz, Mexico - very pale, clear, prismatic crystals that are sometimes double terminated. Crystals are typically phantomed, having a clear quartz interior and an amethyst exterior. Some are sceptered and phantomed. 
  • Guerrero, Mexico - dark, deep purple, prismatic crystals that radiate outward from a common attachment point. Often the crystals are phantomed having a purple interior with a clear or white quartz exterior. These are some of the most valuable amethysts in the world. 
  • Minas Gerais and Rio Grande do Sul, Bahaia, Brazil - crystals form in druzy crusts that line the inside of sometimes large volcanic rock pockets called geodes. The crystals that form are usually light to medium in colour and only coloured at the tops of the crystals.
  • Thunder Bay, Canada - a distinct red hematite inclusion just below the surface of the crystals is unique to this locality. Clusters are druzy crusts that line the fissures formed in ancient metamorphic rocks. 
  • Uruguay - crystals are dark to medium and form in druzy crusts that line the inside of geodes. The crystals are usually colored throughout.
  • North Carolina, USA - Druzy clusters that have a bluish-violet tint. 
  • Pennsylvania, USA - druzy clusters that filled fractures in metamorphic rocks. They are generally a brownish purple and patchy in color. 
  • Colorado, USA -- druzy clusters form crusts inside of fissures in sandstone, often on top of a crust of green fluorite. Crystals are dark but rather small. 
  • Ural Mountains, Russia - a very clear and dark variety that is cut for fine expensive gemstones, natural uncut clusters are rarely on the market. 


Amethyst Birthstone and Zodiac Sign

Amethyst is well-known as the February birthstone or Zodiac gemstone. Zodiac signs or Astrological signs has started from the Babylonian astrology and was influenced by the Hellenistic culture. 

According to Astrology, the positions and movements of celestial bodies are related to human experience and occurrences in nature. Thus, it has been used to tell time in nature to identify past, define the presence and depicts the future.

falls on Pisces Sign (January 21 to February 19). Those who are born under the Pisces signs are said to be kind, sensitive and compassionate. Their delicate charm makes them popular in their circles. They are also emotional and sympathetic. On the other hand, hey are romanticist, enigmatic and ambiguous. They can be easily influenced or persuade.


Amethyst Energy Color

Each gemstone’s color has different intentions and meaning. Depending on the color or the aesthetic features of the crystal, it may result to negative energy. It is always best to understand the crystals innate value. The color connects to the 7 chakras which is the fountain of energy inside the body that is a reflection of the physical, emotional and spiritual transformation.

Amethyst has a sophisticated purple color. It comes in different shades of dark purple, light purple or bluish violet. The color will depend or due from the crystal’s absorption of light as it is said that Amethyst is colorless. At the beginning of the Amethyst growth, iron and quartz combine for crystallization. During this process, gamma rays produced by radioactive materials from the host rock brighten the iron and forming the purple shade.



How to Care for Amethyst

Amethyst is a tough, solid crystal with Mohs hardness of 7. Its hardness is not proof of its durability. Scratch or chip is possible if it will have accidents and may come in contact with an object of the same hardness. 

Abrasion and breakage can also happen upon fall or impact depending on the impact. Best not to use Amethyst jewelry while doing physical activities such as playing sports, physical games or doing house chores. 

The gemstone should also be well kept in a dark storage room or jewelry box. Do not place in a place where there is direct sunlight or too much light. The purple color of Amethyst stone will result to color loss upon prolonged exposure. Sudden change in temperature can also break Amethyst in time. Anything that is too cold or too hot will cause damage.


How to Cleanse Amethyst

Like any other gemstones, Amethyst is sensitive to cleaning materials with acid, alkaline solutions and ammonium fluoride. Best to clean it with mild soap or detergent and water. Use a soft-bristled cleaning brush. Clean it lightly without any pressure, use circular motions gently. 

It is also to remember that prolonged exposure to hot water or cold water can cause damage, so always make sure, in cleaning all types of gemstones to clean it as quickly as possible and do not leave it soaked in soap or water. Air dry the stones and store properly.

Using technology in cleaning jewelries works amazing wonders. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaner uses technology to take care of our jewelries saving a lot of time and effort doing the cleaning ourselves. Ultrasonic jewelry cleaner uses ultrasonic sound waves to clean the jewelry. Depending on what brand or manufacturer, cleaning instructions or manual are included.

AMETHYST CRYSTALS & GEODES FOR SALE

Where Is Amethyst Found?

Amethyst is found worldwide in nearly any location where iron was present during the formation of quartz, prior to some amount of natural gamma radiation. Because quartz is in such high abundance in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rock, it can be assumed that amethyst is quite widespread as well.

The volcanic deposits in Southern Brazil and Uruguay are famous for producing spectacular purple crystal filled geodes, sometimes up to gigantic sizes. Several companies mine these geodes from the hard basalt in the region. Uruguay tends to produce darker colored material that is more valuable than much of the Brazilian material that is available in larger quantities. Elongated geodes from this area are often referred to as amethyst cathedrals.



Another locality that is famous for its beautiful, purple, amethyst crystals is the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Amethyst that comes out of this region is often referred to as Veracruz amethyst or Las Vigas amethyst. There are multiple mines in this mountainous area, each of which produces different qualities of amethyst and other minerals. Elongated crystals with deep purple color are considered to be of the highest quality. Some of these crystals have even been known to measure over 4.5" long, however amethyst crystals of this length are relatively uncommon from Veracruz. Much of the mining in these mountains is done by the locals, acting as a main source of income.



Southern South Africa produces a unique formation of amethyst where aggregations of small quartz and/or amethyst crystals formed over stubby and elongated amethyst or quartz crystals. This phenomenal crystal formation is known by many as "cactus quartz", for it resembles a spiny cactus, though it was originally (and still to this day) referred to as "spirit quartz". Most of these crystals are found in beautiful clusters, some of which contain only a little purple (sometimes none), while other clusters display a vibrant purple color. Cactus amethyst that displays the most prominent color comes from Magelisburg, South Africa There have been claims that the purple coloration is artificial, which in some rare cases could be a legitimate claim, however based on the even distribution of color and remnants of iron oxidation on many of these crystals, in most cases these claims are false.

How Does Amethyst Form?

Amethyst forms when iron impurities make their way into silicon-rich solutions during the formation of quartz, which can occur through hydrothermal processes or the precipitation of mineral rich waters. Often, these iron impurities are modified by natural irradiation from the surrounding rocks or host rock, giving the amethyst (quartz) its purple color. Though to truly understand this, we have to first understand how quartz forms.

Quartz is primarily made up of two elemental components, silicon (Si) and Oxygen (O), both of which are in high abundance on our plant. This combination typically occurs when water that's high in silicon content (often gained through the break down of the surrounding rock) seeps through cracks in rocks and ends up exposed to oxygen within cavities. In this environment, the silicon atoms will bond to oxygen and begin building layers that overtime result in cavities lined with thousands of crystals. These cavities most often occur by means of tectonic activity, hollow tubes formed by lava, dissolution (break down of rock resulting in cavities) or even as solidified bubbles of gas within the earth(geodes).

Amethyst formation within a vug/cavity - Silicon and iron-rich fluids will deposit themselves along the walls of the rock cavities. Long crystals, also known as spears, can form in these cavities when the solution drips more from one location of the rock than the other, explaining why vugs often form a wide variety of crystals sizes in close proximity. The crystals will continue to grow as long as they're provided with the environment necessary for formation. In some instances, a surplus of these minerals will result in a solid vein of quartz or amethyst, where individual crystals can no longer be identified.

Amethyst formation within a geode - While there is yet to be a conclusion as to how geodes form, it's widely accepted that they form by means of solidification of gas bubbles (vesicles) within basaltic lava during igneous rock formation and in round cavities within sedimentary rock. The necessary minerals for amethyst formation precipitate into these cavities, depositing crystals (most often in an even layer) along the inner wall of the geode.

How Does Amethyst Acquire Phantoms (Zoning)?

Some crystals will display concentric zoning, which can also be referred to as phantoms. This can give a single crystal the appearance of having layers of amethyst within. This occurrence is caused by varied chemical composition during the growth process of the quartz crystal.

What Causes The Purple Color Of Amethyst?

The color of amethyst is due to trace amounts of iron within the quartz being exposed to low levels of natural radiation with the earth. The more radiation it's been exposed to the darker the color will be. This is not a rapid process, and is due to exposure to low levels or radiation over millions of years.

Will Amethyst Fade In Sunlight?

Yes, over time amethyst will fade in direct exposure to UV rays (sunlight). How rapidly this happens depends on the individual crystals. This is not a rapid process, often taking years of direct exposure. So, taking a crystal out in the sun occasionally won't have any effect. This fading is a permanent change to the crystal.

Is Amethyst Radioactive?

Some people falsely believe that because the color of amethyst was produced by radiation that it is itself radioactive. The irradiation does not make the crystals themselves radioactive. The surrounding rocks may be very mildly radioactive, but the levels of radiations are less than the background radiation in a typical city so it poses no health risk.

Is Amethyst Treated Or Artificially Colored?

The color of most amethyst is natural. Rarely gemstones will be artificially irradiated to darken their color. Brazilian amethyst is often heat treated to change it to an orangish-brown color and marketed as "citrine" Real citrine is very rare, only found in small crystals and has a yellowish color. I'm not aware of any real citrine coming from Brazil.

A piece of Brazilian amethyst.  One side has been heat-treated to create "citrine".

Where Does The Name Come From?

The name refers to its alleged ability to counteract the effects of alcohol consumption. "methy" is the greek expression for being drunk and ""a-methy-stos" would translate to "one that does not get drunk" The idea that amethyst might protect from drunkenness may have something to do with it's color sometimes being similar to some red wines.

Amethyst has been the most-prized quartz variety for centuries. Once available only to royalty, relatively plentiful supplies have made amethyst more widely available in modern times. Today, because of its availability and affordability, amethyst is used in mass-market jewelry as well as custom designer pieces. This makes amethyst one of the world’s most popular colored gems and the most commercially important gem-quality quartz variety.

Color
The finest amethyst color is a strong reddish purple or purple with no visible color zoning. Dealers prefer strongly saturated reddish purple to dark purple, as long as the stone is not so dark that it reduces brightness. If the color is too dark, an amethyst might look black under dim lighting conditions.

Amethyst Prices

Being a robust gemstone (Moh’s hardness - 7) and abundantly available in nature, amethyst is used in jewelry on a commercial scale. Its prices are influenced more by the color and less by other factors. Yet origin, cut and clarity carry some degree of influence on its prices. Amethyst price per carat in India usually starts from ₹ 150 ($2) and can go up to ₹ 400 ($7).

  • Origin

    – Brazilian amethyst prices range between ₹ 300 to ₹ 400 per carat ($4 to $6), and are usually higher than other origins because of superior color quality. On account of better clarity, African amethyst can also command decent money though that may differ from one stone to another.

  • Color

    – Cost of amethyst is decided almost entirely by its color. Deep purple amethyst with slight red and blue hues, draws higher pricing than too dark or too light gemstones. Color zoning or inconsistent color distribution can marginally reduce amethyst cost on per carat basis.

  • Clarity

    – Amethyst is largely free of visible inclusions. Although when present, they may appear like reddish brown needles or L-shaped bands and can reduce the overall worth of amethyst.

  • Cut & Shape

    – A finely cut gemstone not only illuminates color and light better but can cleverly conceal the inclusions. Faceted gemstones are expensive than cabochons because of the stone wastage incurred in the process. On similar grounds, if overall quality remains same, round and oval shapes are cheaper than square or other customized shapes.

  • Carat weight

    – Unlike other precious gemstones, amethyst is abundantly available in nature. For this reason, one may not find exponential increase in the price of amethyst vis a vis the carat weight.

  • Treatment

    – Due to sufficient availability, amethyst is not that vulnerable to profiteering practices like synthetic processing or treatments. However, it may still be subjected to fracture-filling or color enhancement measures. Usually, natural amethyst is more valuable and astrologically compatible than synthetic or treated ones. To ensure value for money, we advise our customers to buy original, certified amethyst online or from reputed dealers.

Gemstone prices in India are calculated both in Carats as well as Ratti. Amethyst price per carat always amounts equal to Amethyst price per ratti.
1 Ratti = 0.91 Carats


Amethyst Quality

The quality of Amethyst is defined primarily by its color. Yet, before-hand knowledge of other factors can help our customers select the most competent option and buy the best quality Amethyst gemstone online as per their preference.

    • Origin

      – Amethyst mines have been discovered in Russia, Zambia, India, Brazil, Myanmar, Madagascar, Mexico and Sri Lanka. However, rich purple color associated with African amethyst makes it exceptionally popular. Zambian and Brazilian amethyst are other famous amethyst origins because of decently saturated raspberry purple color.

    • Color

      – Amethyst color may range from light pink-violet to deep purple. Finest quality amethyst displays vividly saturated purple color (with or without red tints) and lacks color zoning completely. The gemstone should neither be too light that it waters down the color or too dark that it looks black in poor lighting. Also, one should carefully look for brown tints and color zones as they can lower the quality and overall worth of amethyst, marginally.

    • Clarity

      – Amethyst is graded as Type - 2 gemstone on clarity standards, implying it is naturally cleaner than other precious gemstones. However, whenever present, inclusions in Amethyst exist in and as needles or L- shaped bands. A transparent amethyst without visible inclusions radiates light and color better than the translucent stones. As a rule, lesser the inclusions, better is the quality of amethyst. Since it is comfortably available in nature and quite affordable, it is not worthy to compromise on the clarity aspect when buying amethyst online or from dealers.


1.What is the difference between Green Amethyst and Purple Amethyst?

In gemology, Amethyst is recognized as a naturally occurring, purple colored semi-precious gemstone of Quartz mineral family. Green Amethyst on the other hand is not a different gemstone but the outcome of intense heat treatment done to change Amethyst color from purple to green. The term ‘Green Amethyst’ is a misnomer, meaning it is a false identity that misleads people who might be looking for Prasiolite. While both Amethyst and Prasiolite belong to same mineral family, they do not exist as mere color options but completely different gemstones with different market pricing. Since Amethyst is the most valued gemstone of quartz mineral family, people often try to pitch and sell Prasiolite as Green Amethyst for profiteering. The market value of such a heat-treated stone is far less than Amethyst or even Prasiolite. At GemPundit, you can buy original amethyst online certified by recognized laboratories to ensure a quality purchase.

2. Which is the best origin for Amethyst for astrological purpose?

African Amethyst is considered best for astrological use because of its intense, true purple color. However, since Brazilian and Siberian amethyst are decent enough in quality as well, they can also be worn. Considering that amethyst is not too expensive and astrologically important, we advise our customers to wear high quality amethyst which is color-consistent and inclusion free to receive maximum benefits.

3. Astrologically, is Amethyst as effective as blue sapphire?

Amethyst is recognized in vedic astrology as the substitute or upratna of blue sapphire which means it is capable of delivering results but not without having certain repercussions. When compared with the original astrological gemstone (in this case, Blue sapphire), a substitute takes much more time. In addition, the results may not meet with the expectations of the wearer. Amethyst though is suggested when a person is constrained by budget issues and is in no condition to buy blue sapphire.
