Properties for Stone: Quartz var. Amethyst
Synonyms: Amethystine Agate, Amethystine quartz, Bishops Stone, Lavendine
Color: Lavender, Purple: Amethyst owes its color to gamma irradiation (Berthelot, 1906) and the presence of traces of iron built into its crystal lattice (Holden, 1925). The irradiation causes the iron Fe(+3) atoms that replace Si in the lattice to lose an electron and form a [FeO4]0 color center (Lehmann and Moore, 1966). Despite the intense color, the content of iron occupying Si positions in amethyst is rather low, in the 10-100 ppm range (Dennen and Puckett, 1972).
