Hi, this is Olga Gonzales, and this is how to choose high quality amethysts. Amethysts is a great stone for everyday use and ranges in color from light violet to deep purple. For the absolute top quality amethyst you want to look for the dark purple color that has a little bit of a tinge of blue. Obviously the larger the stone, the more it could be worth as well. You also want to have a look out for very symmetrical cuts, which you can see with a 10x loop, as well as make sure that there aren't many scratches or nicks on your amethysts, these things can definitely affect the value.
