'Siberian Color' Extra Premium Amethyst - Uruguayan - $2.50/carat
Uruguayan amethyst is the best there is. It is produced in relatively small quantities and therefore we often run out of this fine material.
There are two grades of Uruguayan Amethyst: Deep Purple and Extra Premium. Extra Premium has the darkest color and is the very best amethyst you can get. This dark-colored material tends to have different color zones. The colors mix in cut stones and produce flashes of magenta and blue. This material cuts lighter than the photographs would make you think.
Every piece was hand selected for quality and shape from large parcels.
