Add Value To Your Gemstone Collections With Amethyst

Amethyst, a variety of quartz or silicon dioxide contains additional iron oxide compared to any other quartz. The name “Amethyst” comes from the Greek words “Methustos” that means not intoxicated. It is popular as the Bishop’s Stone and worn by Catholic Bishops even today. The ancient Greeks believed amethyst to be an extremely strong antidote to inebriation and usually created wine goblets out of it. In addition, the color of this stone appears because of the irradiation that causes the iron particles to reorganize themselves in the gemstone lattice. If the amethyst stone is exposed to sunlight directly, then its color fades away. The gem forms attractive and unique geodes and clusters. Amethyst stone is a symbol of sincerity, purity and spiritual understanding.
