Re: Green Amethyst

Some aquamarine gems are this color. They are rare and very expensive.

Some from Ross Simons. They have some rings in high carat weights that I would never wear. But I do like this last one, it's 4. something carats. The earrings are amazing, love them.867182.jpg

Re: Green Amethyst

Love those checkerboard cut stones @greeneyedlady . I think that kind of cut for most quartz gems really makes them come alive.

Re: Green Amethyst

@SilleeMee  I agree. Looking at the prasiolite I would want checkerboard cut. It looks prettier.

 

I can't believe some of the jewelry on Overstock. Look at this aquamarine ring. 3 and 1/8 carat in white gold. $625. LOVE. Seems way too good to be true. One review, 5 stars.

Re: Green Amethyst

I've had green amy as well as sold it.  It's part of the quartz family.  Any "sheer" stone like green amy, blue topaz or the like will eventually absorb soap and will turn milky like a creamsickle.  It can't be steamed out.  The stone is damaged.

I have a few prasolite pieces that are of a very good size and the color is a lovely, soft, minty green----love them. My fav is a 1 1/2 inch long crystal that has a swirly, shiny, sterling silver around it as the setting---it is so pretty

Respectfully posted @ECBG  that may be "diffused" stones certainly not all sheer stones. I have owned many blue topaz and aquamarines over the years and not one of them have turned milky. I worked for Tiffany's and full disclosure would be mandatory if that were the case, Never once did I see anyone with an issue with milky stones.

Re: Green Amethyst

I don't consider myself an expert, but I've owned plenty of amethysts and one praisiolite over the years.  Also more blue topaz in various shades than I care to count  (my favorite stone).  Not one of them has absorbed anything, all are clear and have not picked up scratches.  If a stone acts like this I would question its authenticity.  Worth a trip to the jewelers just to settle your curiosity.
