Amethyst


Crystalline quartz in colors ranging from green to pale lilac to deep reddish purple and ranging from transparent to translucent is known as amethyst. Value per carat in amethyst, unlike many gems, doesn't rise exponentially with weight as it is readily available in large sizes; but depends almost entirely on color. The "Siberian" deep purple with red and blue flash commands the highest prices. Green amethyst, new to the market, is produced by heat treatment.

GemSelect.com Blue Zircon Video Reviews

Blue Zircon


Although relatively hard, (rating 6.5-7.5 on the Mohs scale), zircon is brittle and therefore sensitive to knocks and pressure. The gem has the tendency to wear along facet edges. Its use in rings should therefore be limited to protective settings or occasional wear jewelry.

Zircon jewelry should be stored carefully, wrapped in individual twists of paper so that they will not knock against each other.
