A little history...

It is known since ancient times, the Egyptians made jewels of it.
Pharaohs wore amethyst pendants. The amethyst is present on the ring of all the bishops, which is of the same color as their outfit: purple.
Hence its name "the stone of the bishops".
She was supposed to bring them clarity of mind.
Amethyst has also always been present in the jewels of the British royal crown.


The Green Amethyst of the Rio Grande (mineralogists call it "Prasiolite") has a dark green color and is generally of better quality than other, lighter green amethysts. These two varieties come from different mines: in Uberaba (Minas Gerais), one finds the classic green amethyst, while in the Rio Grande do Sul, one can find the finest quality of green amethyst of the same name.
