Amethyst for Auction - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers
Amethyst Amethyst is a purple type of quartz which is widely found and affordable. The name amethyst is derived from the Greek word, 'amethystos' which means 'without drunkenness'; this is because in ancient times people believed amethyst would instil a sober mind and prevent intoxication. 

Amethyst has proven to be one of the most prized gemstones today. This is mainly because of its beautiful shades of purple, with the most sought after colour; a deep saturated reddish purple without colour zones within the stone. As purple is a colour of royalty, amethysts have had a long association with royal collections globally, including the British crown jewels.
