Rated 4 out of 5 by Geni Light, but nice
I don't see any flaws or scratches and other than it being kind of light, it's a nice stone

Rated 5 out of 5 by RamblingRosy Gemmy color!
Deep purple with lively flashes of red - my stone couldn't be prettier and I couldn't be happier.
I found no inclusions in my stone under 10x loupe, great, clean stone - perfect for an emerald cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TXLynne Inclusions to the eye, but beautiful color.
I would probably not try to sell in jewelry because of the eye ready cracks or inclusions. I bought two, both had good color, and I'll enjoy them for that. I know they show the best they have or samples on air, but just wished the stock was more like they showed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JacyF Nice purple color
I ordered two of these. One for my Grand Daughter and one for me. I can't help but think that these stones are kept loose, rubbing against each other until they are placed in a container for showing on TV or Shipping. Using a 10X loupe there are surface nicks and/or scratches. Not large enough to make the stone totally unsuitable for Jewelry or, in my case collection, but they are there. I've noticed this on almost all the stones I have ordered from JTV. For the price I guess I shouldn't complain but I do wish there were handled more carefully before being sold. I wonder how they do store them. They mention scooping out for the parcels. Does that mean they sit loose in a storage bin until they decide to sell them?
All in all, as I said, for the price it was a reasonable purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alfa33 slightly light in color!
The coloring is a slightly light concord grape - and with some sparkle! The actual size is 8.0 x 5.9 x 3.9mm deep with a weight of 1.34 carats. Both the depth and clarity are good ..... but ..... a modest amount of inclusions were easily found with 10x power!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rockponysd good african amethyst
This stone was good rich color & saturation. Emerald cut was thick. I bought 2 of them one for me &one for my husband. Good samples for untreated amethyst. Maybe I will find a setting 4 it some day...rockponysd

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovesTx Nice to have for my collection
I bought this stone just to add to my collection. I wanted to see the difference in a natural untreated amethyst. It wasn't as purple as the picture on the site, but it wasn't light either.

THIS STONE IS JUST LOVELY. IT IS THE DEEPEST PURPLE COLOR AND CLEAR. I'M ADDING IT TO MY COLLECTION OF UNTREATED GEMS. IF YOU WANT A BEAUTY IN PURPLE THIS IS THE ONE.
