Banded Amethyst Crystals



These striking banded amethyst crystals are incredibly tactile and are classified as AAA grade.  Available to buy individually or in larger quantities, they're ideal for collectors or for use in crystal healing.

Purple coloured quartz is known as amethyst and banded amethyst which is also known as chevron amethyst, is a slightly different variety.  In its purest form quartz is colourless but when impurities of iron and manganese are present it brings about a change of colour.  The exact shade of purple can vary significantly depending on how much iron and manganese is present but heat during the stone's early formation also plays an important part .

Amethyst is one of the most popular varieties of the mineral quartz and it's well known around the world but banded amethyst doesn't seem to attract quite as much attention.  The term chevron amethyst is used mainly in the USA and came about because of the chevron-like patterns that are often present.  Included with milky-white coloured quartz between layers of the more familiar purple quartz, it's readily available and is mainly used for lapidary purposes.

These highly polished banded amethyst crystals exhibit rich purple colour nestled between bands of opaque quartz. Amethyst which grades 7 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness is the birthstone for the month of February.
