Regal is the word for amethyst. Excellent deep purple color and clarity make it a bit more expensive, and worth it. Make a quiet statement that says "exquisite taste" by combining it with peridot and iolite. Perfect for occasions when you want to look like a queen. Color ranges from medium to dark.
