  • Lavender amethyst beads are cut from a pale, subtly striped variety of amethyst. This semiprecious gemstone is a lower grade of amethyst, so beads cut from it are more economically priced than darker, more translucent amethyst beads. Despite displaying less clarity, these semiprecious beads still provide a pleasant pastel purple hue that's unusual in the gemstone world.Amethyst is the most highly prized variety of quartz and if not for its widespread availability, would be very expensive. It is the official birthstone for February and one of our best-selling gemstones. Amethyst is formed in silica-rich liquids deposited in gas cavities (geodes) in lava. It occurs in crystalline masses, but the crystals are generally not well developed, so they are generally found as clusters of crystal points. The stone's name is derived from the Greek word amethystos, meaning "not drunken," because people of ancient times believed it to protect the wearer from drunkenness. For this reason, wine goblets often were carved from it! Some amethysts will lose their color in sunlight, so keep them away from direct exposure to help maintain their rich purple.In addition to "preventing" drunkenness, people also once thought the stone encouraged celibacy and symbolized piety. Amethyst was therefore very important in the ornamentation of churches in the Middle Ages. In Tibet, amethyst is considered sacred to Buddha, and malas or rosaries are often fashioned from it. Western mystics say the stone helps instill the highest ideals and urges one to do what is right. They also claim amethyst cures impatience, alleviates feelings of victimization, balances high energy, eliminates chaos and helps keep one grounded. The official state gemstone of the state of Georgia, amethyst is mined in the U.S.A., Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Zambia, Namibia and other African countries.

It occurs in crystalline masses, but the crystals are generally not well developed, so they are generally found as clusters of crystal points. Though geodes are the best place to locate amethysts, they also sometimes grow as stalactites.

In addition to "preventing" drunkenness, people also once thought the stone encouraged celibacy and symbolized piety. Amethyst was therefore very important in the ornamentation of churches in the Middle Ages. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst had the power to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken intelligence. The stone also makes an appearance in L.M. Montgomery's classic book Anne of Green Gables, in which Anne admires an amethyst brooch; she explains that she once thought diamonds must be this beautiful purple color, and cried when she learned they were just plain white.

  • Rock crystal quartz, the most common form of macrocrystalline quartz, is a clear quartz with a colorless, transparent, quiet beauty. We're told that our supply of rock crystal beads is natural, but occasionally we suspect we've been sold lab-grown quartz, which is manmade but chemically identical to the type found in nature. Semiprecious rock crystal beads are considered by many to be the best all-purpose crystal. Also known as Bohemian diamond, Tasmanian diamond and multiple other faux diamond trade names, rock crystal quartz is reputed to cleanse the mind and body, strengthen alignment with one's higher self, enhance the properties of other gemstones, and give strength. It is also said to lessen negativity and remove toxins.  Find related items below, and find out more about quartz in our Gemstone Index.

  • Brownish smoky quartz beads and briolettes are almost always cut from rock crystal quartz that has been heat-treated to produce this coveted color (ours included). Tones of smoky quartz range from yellowish to dep translucent brown. Good specimens of natural untreated smoky quartz do exist, but are difficult to find. Smoky quartz semiprecious beads are also known in the market as cairngorm, Colorado diamond, morion, radium diamond, and smoky citrine. In Sri Lanka, many quartz varieties are called "topaz," including smoky quartz (which is called smoky topaz). The dealers are usually not intending to mislead, but when they say "topaz" they simply mean quartz. Smoky quartz is believed to help ground oneself and remove negativity. It is said to enhance survival instincts, and help wearers reach personal and business goals. Some say smoky quartz is also good for dealing with hyperactivity and attention-deficit disorder.

  • Aventurine is a form of chalcedony (quartz) that contains small inclusions of various shiny minerals. These materials, usually spangles of mica or iron oxide, give the stone a glistening effect known as aventurescence. Aventurine's granular appearance and particular translucence are its most distinctive characteristics. Most aventurine is naturally reddish brown or yellow, though a green variety is also known. The green aventurine you'll find on the market, as well as the red and blue, is almost certainly dyed to achieve its color.The mineral aventurine is named for its resemblance to the well-known aventurine glass of Venice, Italy. As for how the glass obtained its name, tradition has it that a Murano workman accidentally dropped some copper filings in molten glass, creating an attractive new material. And so the glass was named avventurino for the Italian word avventura, or "by chance."Aventurine is said to calm a troubled mind, thereby bringing inner peace. It is also supposed to increase confidence and gratitude, and promote emotional tranquility and positive attitudes. Aventurine is found in Brazil, China, Japan, Russia, Tanzania and the U.S.A., but India produces the majority.
