FSS Amethyst Extract PF

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid

All over the world gemstones have a tremendous reputation as a symbol of elegance, purity and perfection. Their use in cosmetics has increased significantly over the past few years as they are a perfect way to convey the ideal sense of luxury while capitalizing on the holistic benefits associated with the prized gems. Amethyst is not the exception, in fact it is the gemstone that for thousands of years has been used to adorn royalty. The story of Amethyst comes from a Greek legend where the god of wine, Dyonisus, was insulted one day by a mere mortal. He swore the next mortal that crossed his path, would be attacked by his fierce tigers. Along came a beautiful maiden named Amethyst. To protect the innocent maiden from the tiger’s claws, goddess Diana turned Amethyst into a beautiful quartz statue. Dyonisus felt remorse and wept tears of wine over the stone maiden, creating a lively purple stone.

Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and the most valued member of this family. Purple has always been known as the color of royalty; in fact Amethyst is featured in the British Crown jewels and was a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty.


This gemstone is a low pressure/temperature polymorph of SiO2 found all over the world inside geodes and alluvial deposits. Amethyst’s purple color is attributed to its concentration of manganese. This essential nutrient has been shown to act as a coenzyme in a variety of metabolic processes including protein synthesis and mineral transportation and absorption. When applied to the skin, manganese is understood to enhance the proper function of Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD). This is a powerful antioxidant enzyme that is capable of reducing inflammation and preventing other free radical damage that contributes to oxidative stress in the body. As a result, using ingredients that contain manganese may help provide superior protective and anti-aging benefits.

Amethyst is associated with a number of beliefs and regarded as a talisman for both love and fortune. It is popularly known as a protective jewel that guards against thieves and evil spirits. Many believe that if placed under the pillow at night, this beautiful gemstone produces a calm and peaceful sleep. Now a days, Amethyst is known to possess holistic properties associated with healing, cleansing and beautifying the skin. FSS Amethyst Extract PF is an aqueous extract created from pulverized Amethyst. This product is recommended for use as an emotive additive for luxury cosmetics designed to convey glamour, radiance and perfection.
