Mint Amethyst

Mint Amethyst Gemstone

Mint Amethyst, or technically called Prasiolite, is a member of the Quartz family. The light green with bluish tones are created by heat treatment of Violet/Purple Amethyst. It is often found as large crystals and or in geodes. 

‘Mint’ Amethyst is also sometimes created by applying a chemical ‘coating’ onto other clear quartz material. This coating is not in the spirit of Blossom’s promotion of ‘natural’ gem stone materials as it is often not disclosed to buyers and further it has poor durability, frequently wearing through after prolonged wear. 

Mint Amethyst can be used as an alternate to Violet/Purplish Amethyst in terms of birth stones etc. As such it can be the birthstone for the month of February, and can be used as a wedding anniversary stone to celebrate 13 years of marriage.

Similarly as an alternate to Violet/Purple Amethyst, Mint Amethyst can be used as the Zodiac stone for Gemini and is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘awareness’.

 

 

Mint Amethyst is principally sourced from Brazil or Arizona. Blossomjewels typically sources its Mint Amethyst from Brazil.

The material Blossomjewels selects for Mint Amethyst is specifically chosen for it’s ‘mint like’ tones of light green together with pale blue. This pastel effect makes it easily wearable in terms of wardrobe matching.

Mint Amethyst is reasonably hard with a Mohs’ hardness rating of 7/10, so it is well suited for everyday wear.
