Amethyst is the name for purple to violet Quartz crystal. Its name is derived from the Greek ‘amethystos’, loosely translating to ‘not drunk’. The name relates to the ancient belief that this stone could protect its wearer from intoxication.
Amethyst owes its colour to the inclusion of trace amounts of iron in the Quartz crystal lattice – and radiation! Deep inside the earth are natural radioactive minerals, which release gamma radiation into their surroundings when they decay. When Quartz with iron is exposed to the radiation, the iron atoms are transformed and change the colour of the Quartz from clear to purple.
