The unique colour of Amethyst makes it rather unique, meaning few gems are confused with it, especially in deeper shades. The rarer and therefore more expensive gemstones Purple Sapphire and Purple Spinal can be found in the same colour as Amethyst, while Iolite is also similar but has a bluer hue. Fluorite can also have the same colour but its low hardness which makes it unsuitable for use as a gemstone. 

Amethyst colours range from a light, pinkish violet to deep, dark purple, with those that are a transparent deep purple being the most highly regarded.

African Amethyst describes a deeply coloured or darker amethyst that is seen coming out of Africa.

Amethyst has a Mohs hardness of 7
