The vivid, beautiful purple color saturation of the amethyst looks stunning in the natural light. The most well-known and valuable variety of quartz is amethyst. Natural amethyst has a light-to-dark purple color that can range from a painting pale pink to a dark, almost opaque purple due to iron or manganese compound impurities in the stone. Color zoning—angular zones of light and dark colors—is common in solitary stones.

Garnets are a category of minerals that are closely related and come in practically every color. Vivid orange to orangy red are the finest hues for spessartine. It's unusual for spessartine to have no apparent inclusions in the eye. The dazzling stone is created by the strong hue, lack of inclusions, and expert cutting.

Cordierite, a magnesium iron aluminum cyclosilicate mineral named after the French geologist Cordier, comes in the gemstone variation known as iolite. Iolite is renowned for its pleochroic qualities, similar to various other blue gemstones. According to the angle and light source, a gemstone can exhibit pleochroism, which is an optical phenomenon. Iolite's pleochroism is most visible in polarized light. The iolite gem is thought to be more precious the darker the color, which ranges from deep blue to a purple tint.
