Grape Amethyst™

Amethyst is one of the most popular and mystical gemstones: worn by the ancient Romans as a talisman; written about by Leonardo da Vinci who said the gem had the power to protect against evil thoughts and sharpen intelligence; and to this day, amethysts are featured in the Tibetan rosary as the Buddhists believe the gem enhances the peace and tranquility of meditation.

Amethysts come in a variety of shades and colors, from pink to the deepest royal purple which is the sweet flavor of Le Vian®'s Candy Colors® Amethyst. Brazil and Zambia are the major producers of gem quality amethyst.

Very large sizes of rich, deep color amethyst are very rare. An amethyst which weighs more than 1,000 carats can be seen The Smithsonian Institution, whose gem gallery is home to some of the most famous Amethyst gems in the world dating back to the early 1900's. Other famous amethysts housed at The Smithsonian include: the 96-carat heart-shaped Morris Amethyst brooch; a 56-carat square, cushion-cut amethyst necklace that displays a deep purple color with flashes of red.

"Le Vian® challenged itself to find the deepest candy color royal purple amethyst to take the traditional amethyst to new majestic heights,"

From the palest sky-blue to a deep sea-blue, the value of an aquamarine is determined by the color which is determined by traces of iron, the more intense and vivid the blue, the more valuable the gem.

Joan Crawford was often seen wearing an emerald-cut citrine ring that was more than 100 carats!

DEEP SEA BLUE TOPAZTM

Legend has it that topaz dispels all enchantment and helps improve eyesight. In ancient times, it was believed that topaz had the power to increase strength and make the wearer invisible. Today, the gem is favored for its exquisite blue hue which can range from cool icy blues as featured in Le Vian®'s Ocean Blue TopazTM to the deep, Mediterranean blues in Deep Sea Blue TopazTM.

An interesting characteristic of topaz is its ability to build up a distinct electrical charge from heat or friction that it will retain for several hours. Blue is the most popular topaz color which is obtained through a diffusion treatment that is permanent.

"Le Vian® offers two Blue Topaz flavors: Ocean Blue TopazTM which is a diffusion topaz that combines traditional topaz with the modern look of Santorini Blue; and Deep Sea Blue TopazTM, which features some of the deepest blue hues available"

RASPBERRY RHODOLITE®

The history of garnets can be traced back to 3100 B.C., the original red garnet gem adorning the necklaces of Egypt's pharaohs and the signet rings of ancient Rome. Garnets were named by the ancient Greeks for its color which resembled pomegranate seed - granaturn. In legend, the garnet was believed to light up the night, thus protecting the wearer from nightmares. Garnets are all natural, brilliant and durable making them a favorite for jewelry and favored in rings.

Le Vian® chose the most pleasing flavor, the garnet gem known as rhodolite for its Raspberry Rhodolite®. The gems are from the Meralani region, not far from Arusha, Tanzania. The Fiery RedsTM gem with a deep burgundy hue is a stunning starring gem in designs flavored with Strawberry Gold® accented with Chocolate Diamonds®

FOREST GREEN TSAVORITETM

Tsavorite is a green garnet and, like other garnets, forms within metamorphic rocks; its rareness comes from its specific need for more unusual rock chemistries and special conditions to be in place in order for it to form.

The color scale of this gem is fresh and invigorating, ranging from a spring-like pale green to an intensely bluish-green to a deep forest green, which is the flavor of Le Viang Forest Green TsavoriteTM.

"We chose Honey GoldTM as a backdrop which intensifies the lively green flavor of Forest Green TsavoriteTM, one of the brightest green gems in the 50 Shades of GreenTM trend"
