Know the stone you're working with. 💜Amethyst
Mohs ; hardness = 7 ( diamond is a10 , sapphire, ruby are 9 , topaz is 8 )
💜 most, if not all Amethyst are heat treated, to enhance it's color. Therefore they cannot take any heat whatsoever, they will crack and loose it's color
💜 Amethyst is very brittle, it can be scratched or chipped easily. .
💜I'm re-mounting 12.92 ct pear shape Amethyst with an exceptional color. The only way to remove it from this bezel, is to gently cut it out, just under the girdle 💜email@example.com
