A variety of quartz, amethysts are recognisable for their vibrant purple hue, which ranges from pastel lilac to deep mauve. The stone is found in countries such as Brazil, Russia, Canada, Sri Lanka and India. Amethyst is rated 7 out of 10 on the MOHS hardness scale, making it a durable choice for jewelry.

For centuries, the amethyst has been associated with sobriety. Deriving from the Greek word ‘amethystos’, which is loosely translated as ‘not drunken’, ancient Greeks and Romans studded their goblets with amethyst believing wine drunk from the cup would then lose its intoxicating powers, and wearing the stone on the body would have a sobering effect.
