A Rose de France amethyst is a member of the amethyst family of gemstones. It is defined by its markedly light shade of the purple known to the amethyst family. The color is reminiscent of a lavender/lilac shade.

 

Amethyst is rated at 7 on the Moh's Scale of Hardness. Because of its relative hardness and having no particular warnings for care, Amethyst can be used for all jewelry purposes. Amethyst is found in a variety of hues of purple including deep purple, light lilac, lavender and mauve. The pale lilac colors, coined Rose De France, were once considered undesirable but have recently become a popular fashion favorite due to intensive and clever marketing.Regardless of this popularity, the deep, rich purple colors are still the most sought-after.

 

The value of Amethyst almost entirely depends on its color. Because Amethyst is readily available in large sizes, the price per carat does not rise a considerable amount as the size / weight increases, making Amethyst a gemstone that provides excellent value for money.
