Amethyst is a natural crystalline quartz in colours ranging from pale to deep purple. The more intense the colour, the higher the value. The ancient Greeks and Egyptians carved it into animals and jewellery. Amethyst has been found in many countries although most samples come from Brazil. Amethyst from Uruguay has a distinct violet hue. As well as its use in industry, it is believed that amethyst has many healing and calming properties.
