Description

Tremendous, high quality gemstone! Unique, gorgeous, color, cut, and clarity! Fine Grade! These African Amethysts are very fine grade. We acquired Grade AAA rough from Africa and had them cut by an expert. Similar to our Minas Gerais Collection in that we selected a diamond cut, at 55%-60% height to width ratio. The Girdle to Culet is a single facet, which provides a beautiful concave finish to the gemstone. These are not gemstones that can be purchased through other online sites. These are custom cut, natural, African amethysts. Notice the point on the cutlet!

We anticipate making only 10 of these Rings. The African Amethyst is slightly darker than the same cut Brazilian Amethyst. To purchase the entire Brazilian Amethyst Minas Gerais set at a discount, check out the separate Minas Gerais Amethyst Collection listing.

The primary color is natural moderate to dark purple with a secondary pink undertones. This is a vivid, fine quality amethyst. The cut is excellent, and the gemstone and cut is unique to MARILEI. The clarity is VVS-IF. Gem quality.

The setting is a premium De-Ox silver. Formed in an oxygen free environment, this .925 silver is slow to tarnish and very durable. Wonderful Scroll design accents the amazing amethyst centerpiece.

Information about Amethyst Gemstones:

Birthstone: February
Wedding Anniversary’s: 4th and 6th years
Zodiac Stone: Pisces, Feb 19- Mar 20

Word Origin: The word “Amethyst” is derived from the Greek word “Amethystos,” which means “remedy against drunkenness.”

Geographic Origin: Brazil (Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, other areas), Uruguay (Antigua), South Korea, Austria, India, Africa, United States, and other countries.

Gemstone Family: Quartz
Gemstone Composition: Silicon Dioxide (SiO2)
Crystal Structure: Hexagonal

MARILEI™ Approach to Evaluating Amethyst Gemstones

Color, tone, and saturation define the beauty of an Amethyst. Color, also called hue, defines the gem. Tone is the amount of lightness or darkness in the color. Amethyst occurs naturally in a continuum of primary colors, from light toned slightly pink-violet to a deep purple. Secondary colors of red and / or blue are common. A light rosy red (pink) is the most common secondary hue in lighter toned stones.

The ideal tone for amethyst is close to 75%. At this level, the secondary hue (if there is one) will be blue. When the stone is viewed face-up (from the top, down, through the face of the gem), the gem will seem bluish-purple.

Saturation (which is the hue intensity modifier) is typically gray, sometimes brown. Chromatic hues are vivid. Gray will dull the stone and brown will “muddy” the stone.

Cut and clarity are also important. An amethyst’s cut does not have to have ideal, diamond-like proportions, to be beautiful. Still, a cut that is too shallow or deep degrades the gems value. Amethyst gemstones are generally expected to be natural, eye-clean (VS or better clarity) and finely cut, as a result of their relatively low cost.

The finest amethyst has a high degree of clarity (VVS+), has a 75% tone of primary purple hue, with a 15% to 20% blue and red secondary hue. The red secondary color will show with a different light source, almost shimmering within the stone. These stones are very rare.

MARILEI™ uses primarily African and Brazilian amethyst gemstones in jewelry. The African gemstones are coveted for their deep purple color, with some gemstones flashing red (even more rare.) The African (and similar color) gemstones are more expensive, escalating in price as the carat weight increases. Brazilian amethysts are more abundant. While also in beautiful hues, they are more affordable in larger carat sizes. We do travel to Brazil, and on occasion find especially beautiful amethyst gemstones – we will generally feature these gemstones in special jewelry or collections. In regards to Clarity, VS or better is our standard. We do not believe in synthetic amethyst gemstones. Also, we generally refrain from overly shallow or deep stones, as we believe that this degrades beauty and value. As with all of our listings, we will disclose all details about the primary gemstone in each piece of jewelry. We certify each primary gemstone in each piece of jewelry, either “in-house” (by testing commonly accepted testing methods) or through AIGS, BGL, or other certification labs. You can rest assured that a natural amethyst from MARILEI™ is of the highest quality.

Amethyst Variants and Gotcha’s

Amethyst does have popular variants, often used in modern jewelry. As a close sister to Citrine, Amethyst occurs naturally with Citrine as a color-zoned gemstone called Ametrine. The only difference between Amethyst and citrine is the level of iron impurities. When amethyst is heated at high temperatures, 470°C to 750°C, iron impurities are reduced and can turn a violet Amethyst into a golden “heated” Citrine.

While most Amethyst will turn yellow to red-orange (i.e. heated Citrine); another common variant of Amethyst, is the so-called “Green Amethyst.” Technically, the label “Green Amethyst” is incorrect. The proper term is Prasiolite. Prasiolite does occur naturally, and is considered rare when it does. However, most Prasiolite on the open market is “heat treated” Amethyst. Frankly, it against Federal Trade Commission Guidelines to call Prasiolite “Green Amethyst.” Other acceptable names are: Green Quartz, Vermarine, Greened Amethyst, or Lime Citrine. MARILEI™ does use Prasiolite in some settings / collections. Rest assured though, full disclosure is our policy. Natural Prasiolite is significantly more expensive than the “heat treated” version.

Famous Amethyst Collections / Gemstones in History

Throughout the ages, powerful and rich monarchs have used Amethyst as a symbol of royalty, and some Amethysts even decorate the British Crown Jewels. Rumor has it that Amethyst was a personal favorite of Queen Catherine the Great of Russia.

The gemstone is included in royal collections all over the world, from ancient Egypt to the British crown jewels. The Smithsonian has an amethyst that weighs 400 pounds! Ancient civilizations prized the stone more than many gems, which today, enjoy more recognition and value, including the Sapphire and the Ruby. In olden times, Amethyst saw its place in the Christian church, worn on Bishops’ rings. The royal purple color used to symbolize Christ. Saint Valentine was thought to wear a ring set with an antique Amethyst carved with an image of Cupid. The stone is also a symbol of Saint Matthias. There are a number of Biblical references to the amethyst. It was also one of the twelve precious stones in the high priest Aaron’s breastplate. The twelfth foundation of the Holy City was built of amethyst. For some time, true amethyst was valued equally with the diamond.

Folklore / Mythology

According to Greek mythology, Amethyst was a young virgin who became the object of wrath of the Greek God Dionysus after he became intoxicated with red wine. When Amethyst cried out to Goddess Diana for help, she immediately turned the girl into a white, shimmering stone (quartz). When Dionysus realized what had happened and felt remorse for his actions, his tears dripped into his goblet of red wine. The goblet overturned, and the red wine spilled all over the white rock, saturating it until it became the purple quartz that is now known as Amethyst.

The amethyst was believed to induce peace, serenity and temperance. It was thought to restrict alcoholic intoxication. The ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst jewelry and made drinking vessels from amethyst, believing it would prevent intoxication. Amethyst was also believed to improve your skin and hair, prevent baldness, and protect you from deceit. During the Renaissance, Amethyst stood for humility and modesty.
