A for an Amethyst. Color of the wildflower Mallow, or Lilac flower , shades of purple defines this beautiful crystalline quartz . Different angles shows variations of purple , from bluish to reddish . Heating amethyst creates yellow color of citrine and having them both in one stone creates amitrine , a combination of yellow and purple colors .  Bolivia’s Andes , back to colonial times ,were known for the most spectacular amitrine stones, as well as historically known as one of the largest deposits of silver and gold. Colors that are opposite each other on the wheel like purple and yellow ( which creates amitrine) seem to “sit” well together . Red garnet and green peridot would create another beauty of “opposites”. Calibrated stones and their “perfect” symmetry balance well with the texture of our krogu jewelry , which presents pure opposites of symmetry. Our texture is balanced in more natural , organic way, showing imperfection of handmade and adding “double “ contrast of calibrated , “an opposite” color stones enhance a visual joy of our jewelry
