Purple coloured quartz is correctly known as amethyst and banded amethyst is just a slightly different variety. In its purest form quartz is colourless but when impurities of iron and manganese are present it changes 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 which is well known around the world but sadly banded amethyst does not attract anywhere near as much attention. A distinctive stone that's included with milky-white coloured quartz, it's readily available and mainly used as a gemstone, for carving purposes or for tumbling. The quartz often occurs in "chevron-like" patterns which is why it's sometimes known as Chevron Amethyst. Although this name is widely used in America, here in the UK we tend to refer to it as banded amethyst instead.
These highly polished tumbled stones exhibit rich purple colour nestled between bands of opaque quartz. Amethyst is a mineral that's always in great demand and it also happens to be the birthstone for the month of February.
