Green Amethyst

I enjoy reading about different stones that I use. Sometimes the light basics and other times its interesting how they form and what they are used for. My recent favorite stone has been green amethyst. I always thought that amethyst was just purple, so I started to do some research (which means google it). Green amethyst is also called parsiolite, or green citrine. Just like citrine and amethyst its part of the quartz family of minerals. Just a little fun fact. Or fun for me, don't forget I'm a science nerd.
