Amethyst is a 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness. The only difference between regular clear quartz and amethyst is the color, which is caused by iron
and aluminum that were present while the stone was forming. Amethyst is always a shade of purple, sometimes very light, other times very dark, and
occasionally you will find red dots or red or blue hues in the stone. Amethyst and citrine are closely related: citrine is formed when amethyst is exposed
to heat when forming. Some people even call citrine “burnt amethyst”. When citrine and amethyst are found together in one piece, it is called ametrine
and is very sought after. Amethyst is the birthstone for February and is mentioned under the astrological signs Pisces, Aries, Aquarius, and Sagittarius.
Amethyst is found in Russia, India, Brazil, US, Canada, Australia, and South Korea. Amethyst, because of its hardness and beautiful color is very
popular in jewelry. It is readily available at relatively low prices, even for high grade material, and is available in a huge range of sizes and shapes.
