A stone which has been held in high esteem for thousands of years, the pale colored amethysts are sometimes called “Rose-de-France” and are often seen set in Victorian jewelry. The amethyst owes its fabled color to trace amounts of manganese and iron. Its purple color made it a stone of royalty for many thousands of years and is seen in the British Crown Jewels. It was a favorite gem for Catherine the Great and considered sacred to Buddha in Tibet, where rosaries are often fashioned from it. Today, we value this gem just as the royals did ages ago!
