In its purest state quartz is clear. Amethyst, the most valuable gem-variety of quartz, derives its purple color from the interplay of its iron and aluminum atoms. Deeper purple hues are the most coveted. Amethyst jewelry is on display in our Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals, National Museum of Natural History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
