The purple variety encompasses dark and light shades that border on pink. The most sought-after colour is an intense, brilliant dark purple, which is often set in bands or zones. The name comes from the ancient Greek words a- (“not”) and méthystos (“intoxicated”) meaning: ‘not intoxicated’ as it was believed to protect from the effects of drinking too much wine. According to Leonardo da Vinci Amethyst dissipates evil thoughts and quickens intelligence. Tibetans consider Amethyst sacred for the Buddha and make prayer beads from it. It is the gemstone used to commemorate the 6th wedding anniversary.
Diamonds always occur as isolated crystals, in shapes that tend towards a perfect octahedron, sometimes with rounded edges or even with an opaque skin. The name derives from the Greek ‘adamas’, which means unbreakable or invincible, probably because of its excellent strength. They are formed at great depths in the Earth’s mantle, in high–pressure, high-temperature conditions. The formation of diamonds is due to volcanic eruptions through narrow pipes that rise vertically from unknown depths and grow progressively in diameter until they reach the surface. Given the rarity of the stones and therefore an increase in value, the dimensions and the weight of the stone are as fundamental to the price as the colour, purity and cut.
