Amethyst is a purple quartz crystal. It is a very popular semi-precious stone which is often used in jewellery. The beautiful purple colour is caused by the stone's content of iron, manganese and titanium. The quality of the amethyst is generally measured by how little white quartz is visible. The less white quartz, the finer the stone or bead. In this category you will find a wide selection of amethyst beads for jewellery making like round or faceted beads, teardrops, nuggets and berry beads.
