Amethyst is purple quartz which has long been considered a royal color. Amethyst was featured in the British Crown Jewels and was a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian Royalty. Brazil and Zambia are the two primary sources of Amethyst. Hollow geodes and volcanic tubes are the most common places for amethyst to form.
Mohs hardness scale ranks amethyst as a 7 making it relatively hard and great for making jewelry. When cleaning amethyst it is safe to use soapy water, alcohol, or commercial solvents. Ultrasonic cleaners and steam cleaners are also safe to use.
