About Amethyst
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.

Color

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.

Cleaning

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.

J156401 - Honora Sterling Cultured Pearl & Gemstone 18" Y-Necklace 4.6 5 7 7
Classy and Flattering for Any Age Bought this piece in the white & black for my 16 year old daughter to wear to her junior prom. Her gown was teal blue with a black mesh overlay & black embroidery & beading accenting both bodice & skirt. This necklace looked lovely on her--just the right touch without being over the top. I could see, too, how it visually made her look more slender, drawing the eye in a vertical rather than horizontal line. She looked like Cinderella! Since the prom, I have borrowed this necklace to wear to work several times. It looks great with my summer black & white dresses & suits. This is a great value for the price and the elegance it can add to so many outfits! 07-06-11
Looks expensive! I love Honora! I purchased the white and black. This is an exceptional value, and is a gorgeous necklace! 06-28-11
Love this necklace I love this necklace and have had several compliments on it. This is a great necklace to wear day or night. Every sophisticated woman should own one. Buying the white one next. 06-01-11
elegant and versatile I purchased this pearl necklace in the black and white combo. I have worn it several times already because it is so versatile. First, I wore the necklace with my black George Simonton seamed top and it looked amazing. I've also worn it with a crisp white blouse and black trousers. I wore it last night with a simple black dress and my Simons-Ross black, pearl and crystal dangley earrings. It matched perfectly! I am so excited that this purchase turned out to be a very smart one. Not only that, I love how the Y shape elongates my neckline. I think that makes me look thinner. Oh, and I forgot to say that I love the quality of the pearls and onyx! 05-15-11
Another stunner Love this piece- The pearls are just gorgeous.. Great buy 04-25-11
Necklace easily tarnish The necklace is absolutely beautiful, but after a few hours of wearing I noticed when I checked in the mirror the sterling silver turned almost black, I have only a few pieces of sterling silver because it tarnish so easily but this one I was totally surprised. 04-24-11
Perfect summer necklace The melon color in this necklace is fabulous. The necklace is very light weight and airy....perfect for summer. You hardly know it is around your neck, but it is striking. Wonderful design. Love the contrasting gemstones. 04-13-11
