Amethyst is a form of quartz. Amethyst can vary from deepest purple to a much lighter sometimes pinkish hue. Differences in the characteristic purple colouration of this crystal are determined by variations in the levels of magnesium present during the crystallization process. Though found across the world, the most notable Amethyst deposits are found in Brazil, Uruguay and Madagascar.
