Quartz is one of the most widely distributed minerals. Amethyst (silicon dioxide) is the most valuable type of the quartz gemstones. It is characterized by its shades of purple, caused by the presence of iron. Amethyst is named after a maiden in Greek legend whose name was "AMETHYST", which in Greek means "not drunken" and was worn as an amulet against drunkenness in ancient times. Amethyst forms in volcanic rock in the form of crystals. It can be found in Canada, Mexico, Africa, and the United States, but the best sources of amethyst are Brazil and Uruguay. Most of the world's supply comes from the same general area of Brazil and Uruguay.
