About Amethyst

Stone Information & Mining

Amethyst is the purple variety of the quartz mineral species. It's the gem that's most commonly associated with the color purple, even though there are other purple gemstones such as sapphire and tanzanite. Its purple color can be cool and bluish, or a reddish purple that's sometimes referred to as "raspberry."

Legend & Lore

Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages. It was once considered equal in value to ruby, emerald, and sapphire. It's no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops as well as the coronation regalia of British royalty.


Amethyst's purple color can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple and from brownish to vivid. Amethyst also commonly shows what is called color zoning, which in the case of amethyst usually consists of angular zones of darker to lighter color.



Amethyst can be safely cleaned with warm soapy water. Ultrasonic cleaners are usually safe except in the rare instances where a stone is dyed or treated by fracture filling. Steam cleaning is not recommended, and amethyst should not be subjected to heat.

J263592 - Gemstone Sterling Cross Pendant with Chain, Boxed 4.6 5 27 27
Got the Citrine for Mother for Mother's Day Was looking for perfect gift for Mother's Day. Ordered the Citrine because its her birthstone. Very pretty. She liked it ver much. Cant speak to durability as I just gave it and she has not worn it yet. I was amazed though when I got it. It looks much better in person. Stone is a very nice color. 05-17-12
Gorgeous! Oh my gosh -- photos and TV do not do this cross justice. It is strikingly beautiful in the garnet. I only purchased one, to save for a gift for my mother-in-law for next January's bithday. As soon as I saw it in person, I went online, intending to order three more for all the women in my family with January birthdays, including myself! Well, they were sold out, so I missed out. I truly wish I could go back and get four at once. Wish QVC had plans to bring this very beautiful necklace back. It is the best birthstone gift ever! Perfect size for all, beautiful color saturation in the gemstones, wonderful quality all around. 04-27-12
Great value!! Bought the citrine (only choice...I missed the presentation) and I LOVE it! Beautiful stones that sparkle and shine. This is not the madeira citrine that is darker and more orange, these gemstones are more like lemon candy. Would love to have gotten the other choices! 04-24-12
Bummed The chain broke after a few weeks, and the bail is so small no other chain will fit! The cross itself is very pretty, but the chain and bail were a huge disappointment. 04-18-12
The Citrine was beautiful. The citrine cross was beautiful. I bought it for my daughter and when I saw it I wanted one for myself. 04-10-12
Absolutely Wonderful I originally bought this in Amethyst. I gasped when I opened it. It's the perfect size! I grabbed the phone and ordered Peridot and Garnet. Can't wait to give them to my family. Thanks QVC! 04-04-12
This means so much to me My husband passed away in January and his birthday is also in January. When I saw this Garnet cross I just had to have it. It is the perfect size and looks much more expensive. I put it on as soon as it arrived and have not taken it off. I purchase a lot of jewelry from the Q but this cross is by far my favorite and so well made. Thank you QVC for having something that means so much to me. Bookbabe 04-03-12
Lovely! I bought this cross in garnet first, it's so beautiful and loved it so much I bought another, the blue topaz, equally beautiful. It's not crazy big like some crosses you see these days. This is just a great size with an elegant presence. 03-28-12
BEAUTIFUL CROSS A friend gave me this cross in the peridot green this past Christmas. It is so pretty that I decided to get this in the citrine. It is every bit as pretty as is the peridot. Because you really don't see the silver backing I'll be able to also wear it on a gold chain. I'd tell anyone on the fence to go ahead and order one. Beautiful little presence on your neck. Perfect gift item. 03-26-12
Beautiful stones I purchased this in purple and it is a beautful piece. 03-10-12
Beautiful neckless I got the Amethyst for my daughter-her birthstone. Color not as dark as I would have liked but pretty just the same. Not real big or real small-good size neckless. 03-03-12
Pretty Peridot This is a great value for the price. Peridot stones have nice color and I like that the cross is of a smaller size but really stands out. 02-26-12
