Garnets form as a result of the metamorphosis of sedimentary rocks under intense heat and pressure within the Earth`s crust, often at the boundaries of moving tectonic plates. There are several groups of Garnet , the most common being Pyrope and Alamandite , which are magnesium or iron aluminium silicates. Most Garnets are red in colour.
Amethyst is a silicate mineral with traces of iron . Amethyst forms when silica rich solutions enter cavities, evaporate and form beautiful crystals . In the right conditions the iron in the crystals is irradiated , so producing the rich purple colour of the stone.
Amethyst is the birthstone for Aquarius and Pisces. It is said to protect the wearer, relieve negativity and even prevent drunkenness!
