Gemme viola porpora
The list of violet and purple gemstones is quite short when it comes to natural gems. Amethyst is the most well-known and classic example referenced since ancient times. Amethyst is the transparent purple to violet variety of quartz, and is the official birthstone for the month of February. Besides amethyst, there are wonderful violet hues found within the spinel, tourmaline and sapphire families. Fluorite can be found in extraordinary purple colors. Other purple gems include chalcedony quartz, jadeite and charoite, all of which often occur with a cool lavender color, gem-quality pink spodumene, known as kunzite, is known to exhibit a violet color too.
There are a few other notable violet gemstones, such as tanzanite and iolite; though it is more known for being blue, the name 'iolite' originates from the Greek word for 'violet'. Scapolite and apatite are lesser known, but commonly occur with violet color. The color purple is linked to royalty and in general, is thought to induce peace. Purple gemstones are a magnificent color option for jewelry designs, as the combination of blue and red brings about an aura of both warm and cool tones. Purple is slightly stronger and has a more prevalent reddish hue, but many prefer cooler violet, lavender and lilac hues.

I always check this site because they have unique options.
I ordered this really nice pair of Rubies from Gemselect and I love them because of all the detailed information you get. Also if you scroll down you can see other similar items single, in pairs, lots, bigger, smaller, etc and it's such an easy website to use.
I wasn't sure where to go to find a variety of gemstones to choose from in the size and shape that I was looking for. I'm really glad I found this website because the search options and filters made it really easy to find what I was looking for. The prices seem quite reasonable. This will be the first place I go the next time I'm looking for a gemstone!
