The chemical composition of Amethyst is SiO2 – it is a variety of quartz.
The best varieties are found in Siberia, Sri Lanka and Brazil. The colour is due to traces of iron. The Ancient Greek believed it could prevent intoxication, while medieval soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle.
This stone has a vivid sky blue or green-blue colour, often containing grey or brown veins. It has been highly valued by many cultures. The Turks, after whom the stone is named, attached Turquoise to their horses bridles for protection. The Native Americans believed the stone to be 'the breath of life', symbolising the sky and reminding humans of their spirituality
