Recognised as the official February birthstone, this violet/purple stone belongs to the quartz family of gemstones and is one of the more valuable pieces in the amethyst range.. Amethysts have a hardness of 7 on the Moh’s scale. They are mostly purples and violets, ranging from light to dark in colour and are regarded as regal. They are simple yet exquisite gemstones that symbolise power. When heated, a violet aquamarine will turn to a yellow citrine as a result of being exposed to heat, through the reduction of the iron inside it.
