    About Amethyst:

    Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz known to come in many different shades and saturations.  Terms have been developed by the gem industry to describe some of these shades, such as "Rose de France" for lilac and "Siberian" for deep purple with red flashes.  Many amethysts from Brazil can turn into yellow citrine when heated at 850 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Because amethyst is quartz, material is durable and ranks 7 on the Mohs hardness scale.  Amethyst makes great rings and is easy to clean with soap and water at home.  Chemical jewelry cleaners are safe to use on amethyst jewelry.
