FAQs about Amethyst Jewelry
How to buy the perfect Amethyst jewelry?
There are 3 things to consider when buying Amethyst jewelry: color, cut and clarity. Amethyst comes in variations of violet. The primary color of amethyst is purple, but it can have red and blue as secondary colors, which can range from very pronounced to virtually invisible. Lighter stones have a pinkish hue, whereas darker ones have a deep purple tone. There seems to be amethyst in a green variety, but this is incorrect. What passes for green amethyst is simply green quartz. It is true that amethyst is also a variety of quartz, but the green variety of this mineral is not technically considered amethyst. However, it is possible to turn amethyst green through heat treatment, but natural amethyst does not occur in this color. Look at the amethyst in a well-lit setting, and see if the stone looks clean and clear to the naked eye. The clearest, the better. Evaluate its cut by looking at how intense the stone’s color is. If the amethyst’s tone is well saturated and the gemstone is cut in a shape that you like, then the stone should be a good choice for you.
Is Amethyst jewelry expensive?
