Our amethyst comes from a wide variery of locations such as Brandberg, Boekenhouthoek, Zambia, Namibia Kaokoveld and many more.
The ancient Greeks believed that amethyst protected people from drunkeness but I can personally attest to the inacuracy of this 🙂
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2). and its color iz caused by irradiation, iron impurities, and the presence of other trace elements, which cause complex crystal lattice substitutions. The hardness of the mineral is the same as quartz, thus it is suitable for use in jewelry.
