a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelryAmethyst
is the traditional birthstone for February. Amethyst occurs in primary
hues from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple.
Amethyst may exhibit one or both secondary hues, red and blue. The ideal grade is
called "Deep Siberian" and has a primary purple hue of around 75–80%,
with 15–20% blue and (depending on the light source) red secondary hues. Of
very variable intensity, the color of amethyst is often laid out in stripes
parallel to the final faces of the crystal. One aspect in the art of lapidary
involves correctly cutting the stone to place the color in a way that makes the
tone of the finished gem homogeneous. Often, the fact that sometimes only a
thin surface layer of violet color is present in the stone or that the color is
not homogeneous makes for a difficult cutting.Amethyst was used as a gemstone by
the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in antiquity for intaglio engraved gems. The Greeks believed amethyst gems could
prevent intoxication, while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as
protection in battle in the belief that amethysts heal people and keep them
cool-headed.Amethyst can fade in tone if overexposed to light sources.
Jade is the birthstone for
March. Jade displays hues including green, white, pink, red, black, brown and
violet. Over the centuries "the stone of heaven" ignited emotions,
compassion and obsession of the powerful in Asia and caught the rich and famous
of the West in the 19th century. In Antiquity, as well as in the Middle Ages
people believed that the cosmos is reflected in gemstones. Jade is assigned to
the planets Jupiter and Pluto. This gem is regarded as a symbol of the good,
the beautiful and the precious. It embodies the Confucian virtues of wisdom,
justice, compassion, modesty and courage. One test for genuine jade is to hold it up to a bright
light. If possible, examine the internal structure with a 10X loupe. Can you see little fibrous or
granular, felt-like, asbestos-like intertwinings? If so, it's probably genuine
nephrite or jadeite.
quartz, traditionally called rock crystal (sometimes called clear quartz), is
colorless and transparent or translucent.
Common colored varieties include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst,
smoky quartz, tourmaline quartz (which is hot through with black threads),
rutilated quartz (generally shot through with gold threads) and milky quartz
(aka snow quartz). Rose quartz is a type of quartz which exhibits a pale pink
to rose red hue. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium,
iron, or manganese,
in the massive material. Some types of quartz contain microscopic rutile
needles which produces an asterism in transmitted light. Recent X-ray diffraction
studies suggest that the color is due to thin microscopic fibers of possibly
dumortierite within the massive quartz.In crystal form (rarely found) it is
called pink quartz and its color is thought to be caused by trace amounts of phosphate
The color in crystals is apparently photosensitive and subject to fading. The
first crystals were found in a pegmatite found near Rumford,
US, but most crystals on the market come from Minas Gerais,
Tiger's eye (also called Tigers eye or Tiger eye)
is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown color, with a silky luster. A member of the quartz
group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of
fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos). An incompletely
silicified blue variant is called Hawk's eye. Chatoyancy exhibits a
changeable silky luster as light is reflected within the thin parallel fibrous
bands. This effect is due to the fibrous structure of the material. The gems are usually cut en cabochon
in order to best display their chatoyancy.
Red stones are brought about through gentle heat treatment. Dark stones have
had their colors improved and been artificially lightened using nitric acid treatments. Tiger's Eye is very popular in jewelry making. It has the grounding
energy of the earth, but embellished with glowing warmth. This stone is perfect
for people in need of more confidence to accomplish their goals. It helps
people to recognize self resources and use it for the attainment of their
dreams apart from making them judge situations and determine the best possible
way to approach it. Many legends about quartz say that wearing tiger's
eye (which is a form of quartz) is beneficial for health and spiritual well
being. Legend also says it is a psychic protector, great for business, and an
aid to achieving clarity. Roman soldiers wore it, engraved with symbols, to
protect them during battle.
