To me, this is a very special gem! Four Peaks Amethyst is unbelievably hard to find! I won't lie, I've been searching all the local shops in Arizona, hunting down this gem for over ten years! When I read of it's beautiful dark phantoms, and it's unique magenta flash, I knew I had to have it! I was so excited recently, to come upon a small lot, and I thought it would be fun to add a few to my shop!
According to Wikipedia, "Amethyst is a violet variety of Quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from Ancient Greek "a-" ("not") and μέθυστοςméthystos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The Ancient Greeks wore Amethyst and made drinking vessels decorated with it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. It is one of several forms of Quartz. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February.
Amethyst is a purple variety of Quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation, iron impurities (in some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities), and the presence of trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. The hardness of the mineral is the same as Quartz, thus it is suitable for use in jewelry."
