NOTES - Only three mines produced this high quality material a deep purple with a blue undertone and lilac and red flashes. Siberia (mined out,) 4-Peaks (In AZ. USA) but over-mined for Chinese demand decades ago, now more of a museum.
Top color material is rare and like the Uruguay and 4-Peaks amethyst they now can go for thousands of dollars for a top quality gem with the traits listed previously. The red flash is a distinctive feature of high quality amethyst. Siberian and Real 4-Peaks material is very expensive. Most on the market unless mounted in old Russian Jewelry or Tiffanys/Harry Winston made pieces or other high end jeweler or collector pieces,
BEWARE the many, many fakes online which primarily India has been selling. These include glass and overheated cheap amethyst material that looks oily (and is an odd dark purple color,) claiming it is Siberian, Uruguayan or 4-Peaks material. This has flooded the market with cheap inferior material worth little to nothing, though people are paying thousands of dollars for these forgeries. Also note the red flash can be, “light particular,” and only shows up in some lighting situations. Some gems have a spark of red and some are inundated with the red flash. We have found the more red flashes the higher the price for the gem.
