During the Renaissance, Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst holds the power to dispel evil thoughts and quicken one's intelligence. Purple is the color of royalty and of passion, and the provocative amethyst has been used by healers for centuries to increase their psychic abilities and intuition. Cross-culturally, this popular gemstone was used as a symbol of peace and unification.

Amethyst Jewelry Care & Handling
This stone is fairly hard (7 Mohs) and durable, yet you will want to protect your amethyst jewels by wrapping them in a soft cloth and keep them in your Ross-Simons presentation box. Clean your amethysts with warm, soapy water. Remember amethyst gems often become paler if kept in the sun, so try to keep them away from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
