Amethyst: Peace, Power, Protection and Spirituality


Amethyst is Crystalized Quartz. Its colors vary from pale lavender(Rose-de-France Amethyst) to deep purple with red highlights(Siberian Amethyst). When exposed to strong sunlight for extended periods, amethyst may fade in color. It is one of the most popular gemstones and symbolizes piety.

Amethyst is generally abundant, and a less expensive stone(pennies to a few dollars per carat). Siberian Amethyst is more rare and may bring more like tens of dollars per carat. There is also a purple variety of corundum, called an Oriental Amethyst. The word comes from the Greek word for anti-intoxicant.
