Amethyst is one of the most popular forms of
quartz. It comes in
range of purple shades. A small amount of manganese and
iron give the
amethyst its color.
The color purple
is traditionally the color of royalty. Amethyst has
been used since the dawn of history
to adorn the rich and the
monarchs and rulers. Amethyst is a
semi-precious stone found
throughout the world. Different
localities can produce an amethyst
unique to that
particular region or even to that particular mine.
