What is Rose de France Amethyst?
Rose de France is a variety of amethyst found only in southern Brazil, known for a light lavender or pink lavender color. These colors are due to the presence of titanium oxide. One fascinating aspect of the stone is pleochroism. Hence, it can display tones of red or blue( depending on how light strikes the gem).
Typically, this is a natural gemstone. Occasionally the color of Rose de France is enhanced by heating. When shopping for a Rose de France ring, be sure to ask if the stone is a treated or enhanced gem.
The stone rose to popularity across Europe in 1727. At this time, it was called Brazilian Amethyst. Over time, the stone’s popularity in France led to the name “Rose de France.”
Amethyst is a seven on the Mohs scale, meaning it resists scratching and chipping. However, you’ll want to ensure you maintain proper jewelry care. By employing standard care techniques (such as regular cleanings), you’ll extend the life of your ring.
