Amethyst is the official gem for Aquarius, Wednesday and Jupiter and once considered the ‘jewel of the gods’.   The amethyst is said to cause lovely dreams and visions.  Amethyst has been associated to represent sincerity, deep love, wealth, humility and happiness.  This gem is available in purple, green and pink colors.


Color The finest amethyst color is a strong reddish purple or purple with no visible color zoning. Dealers prefer strongly saturated reddish purple to dark purple, as long as the stone is not so dark that it reduces brightness. If the color is too dark, an amethyst might look black under dim lighting conditions.
Clarity Translucent to transparent.
Cut An amethyst is often cut into a variety of shapes with pear, emerald-cut, square, trillion, cabochon, round, oval, cushion, and heart being the most common.
