The Amethyst is a beautiful, violet stone that has been a popular gem since ancient times. It is a gorgeous violet-coloured quartz that is mostly found in cavities of volcanic rock. The violet amethyst is a close relative of the rock crystal, which owes its wonderful colour to the finest traces of iron in its crystal lattice. The colour is rarely even and most amethysts have colorless and dark zones. Amethyst was once very expensive, but since farmers in southern Brazil discovered very large deposits around 1860, most of the world's amethysts have come from Brazil.
