Amethyst is a purple range of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation, iron impurities (in many cases in combination with shift aspect pollutants), and the existence of micronutrient, which result in complex crystal lattice alternatives. The hardness of the mineral is the exact same as quartz, thus it is suitable for use in precious jewelry.

Hue and tone
Amethyst takes place in main colors from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple.
Amethyst might display one or both secondary hues, red and blue. The ideal grade is called & quot; & quot; Deep Siberian & quot; and has a primary purple hue of around 75-80 %, with 15-20 % blue and (depending on the light source) red secondary colors. Environment-friendly quartz is in some cases incorrectly called green amethyst, which is a misnomer and not an appropriate name for the material, the proper terms being Prasiolite. Other names for green quartz are vermarine or lime citrine.
Faceted amethyst
Of very variable strength, the color of amethyst is typically set out in stripes parallel to the last faces of the crystal. One element in the art of lapidary involves correctly cutting the stone to place the color in such a way that makes the tone of the finished gem uniform. Frequently, the reality that occasionally just a thin surface area layer of violet color is present in the stone or that the color is not homogeneous produce a tough cutting.
The color of amethyst has actually been demonstrated to result from substitution by irradiation of trivalent iron (Fe3 +) for silicon in the structure, in the presence of trace elements of large ionic radius, and, to a specific degree, the amethyst color can naturally arise from displacement of shift aspects even if the iron concentration is low. Natural amethyst is dichroic in reddish violet and bluish violet, however when warmed, turns yellow-orange, yellow-brown, or dark brownish and might appear like citrine, [6] however loses its dichroism, unlike authentic citrine. When partly heated, amethyst can result in ametrine.

Amethyst can fade in tone if overexposed to light sources and can be artificially darkened with adequate irradiation.

Roman intaglio etched gem of Caracalla in amethyst, as soon as in the Treasury of Sainte-Chapelle.
Amethyst was utilized as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in classical times for intaglio engraved gems.
The Greeks believed amethyst gems could avoid intoxication, while middle ages European soldiers used amethyst amulets as protection in fight in the belief that amethysts heal individuals and keep them cool-headed. Beads of amethyst were discovered in Anglo-Saxon graves in England. A huge geode, or & quot; & quot; amethyst-grotto & quot;, from near Santa Cruz in southern Brazil existed at the 1902 exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany.
In the 19th century, the color of amethyst was credited to the presence of manganese. However, since it can being significantly altered and even discharged by heat, the color was thought by some authorities to be from a natural source. Ferric thiocyanate has actually been recommended, and sulfur was stated to have actually been detected in the mineral

The Greek word & quot; & quot; amethystos & quot; may be equated as & quot; & quot; not drunken & quot;, from Greek a-, & quot; & quot; not & quot; + Methustos, & quot; intoxicated & quot;. Amethyst was thought about to be a strong antidote against drunkenness, which is why wine goblets were often sculpted from it. According to a 16th century French poem, Dionysus, the god of intoxication, of wine, and grapes was pursuing a maiden named Amethystos, who refused his loves. Amethystos hoped to the gods to continue to be chaste, a prayer which the goddess Artemis addressed, changing her into a white stone. Humbled by Amethystos’s desire to stay chaste, Dionysus poured wine over the stone as an offering, dyeing the crystals purple.

Variations of the story include that Dionysus had been insulted by a mortal and testified slay the next mortal who crossed his course, producing fierce tigers to bring out his wrath. The mortal turned out to be a beautiful young lady, Amethystos, who was on her way to commemorate Artemis. Her life was spared by Artemis, who transformed the maiden into a statue of pure crystalline quartz to protect her from the harsh claws. Dionysus wept tears of wine in regret for his action at the sight of the stunning statue. The god’s splits then stained the quartz purple.
This misconception and its variations are not found in classic sources. Although the titan Rhea does present Dionysus with an amethyst stone to maintain the wine-drinker’s peace of mind in historic text.
