Barion Hexagon with Sawtooth Crown Cut Amethyst, Nigeria, 22.84 cts

This is a big, flashy, amazing amethyst that shows outstanding colors in all lighting conditions, and has a strong color shift. In daylight, it is a very nice deeper grape purple, shifting to a tanzanite-like blue-purple under most fluorescent light, then turning almost completely magenta hot pink colored under incandescent light. In person, it’s a bit darker than the photo, but not a lot…just enough to make it a truly stunning example of how intense the colors of an amethyst can be.
