There’s not a gem out there we don’t like. Like people, each one holds its own distinctive and brilliant qualities that make it shine.
Take Rose de France Quartz, a member of the Quartz gemstone family. It’s also known as lavender amethyst but possesses a much lighter in color (think lilac) than traditionally violet-hued amethyst. It can be heated to lighten color and/or to remove “smoky” components (like in the earrings below).
The pale lilac colors, coined Rose De France, were once considered undesirable but have recently become a popular fashion favorite.
