About Amethyst Glass

An amethyst is a purple colored stone, which is often used for ornaments. The name amethyst is derived from the Greek word 'a', which means 'not', and 'methuskein', which means 'to intoxicate'. It was believed that the ancient Greek and the Romans wore an amethyst and made their drinking vessels from the amethyst as they believed that this would prevent them from getting drunk from the intoxicating contents within the glass. The scientific formula for amethyst is SiO2. Further research revealed that the purple color of the amethyst is because of the presence of manganese. However, on exposure to heat this stone generally becomes yellow. The yellow amethyst is called the 'burnt amethyst', which is often used in jewelry as the citrine cairngorm or the yellow quartz. The irregular superposition of alternate lamellae of the right- handed and the left 'handed quartz is the main composition of an amethyst. This structure of an amethyst can be due to the mechanical stresses. As a consequence, of this composite formation; the amethyst is apt to break with a ripple fracture. This is the same reason why an amethyst can show 'thumb markings'. An amethyst is processed and made into purple-pinkish glass. This is called the amethyst glass. The amethyst glass shows almost the same property as an amethyst. The amethyst glassware is gaining popularity as an antique. There are different products made from amethyst glass such as vases, bowls, lamp stands, plates, wine glasses etc. Previously, an amethyst was considered a cardinal or one of the most valuable gemstones available, placed in the same range as the diamond and the ruby. However, with the discovery of huge deposits of the amethyst found in Brazil, the amethyst lost its value as a precious stone. Amethyst occurs at many localities in the United States. Few of the places are Texas, Yellowstone National Park, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Deer Hill and Maine.
