Amethyst


Geology and History


Amethyst is a purple variety of Quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet colour to irradiation.  Iron impurities (in some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities) and the presence of trace elements result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.

Amethyst was used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in antiquity or intaglio engraved gems.  The Greeks believed Amethyst gems could prevent intoxication.  Medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle, in the belief that amethyst would heal people and keep them cool-headed.  Beads of amethyst were found in Anglo-Saxon graves in England.  The Pope wears an Amethyst ring as a connection to the Divine.
