Amethyst, jade

This stone should be chosen on the basis of its colour and its cut. Amethysts are always purple, though the Siberian amethyst is dark purple in colour, and the German one is of a lighter purple shade. There are various types of cut, as with all gems, and the highest quality is the Siberian cut.
Jade can be either the green and white nephrite or the dark green jadeite. The beautiful colour of the jade comes from the quantity of chromium in the stone.
