The process of refining Uruguayan amethyst is a careful and meticulous one, aimed at maximizing the potential of this precious gemstone while ensuring that it retains its natural beauty and unique characteristics.
The first step in the refining process is the selection and organization of the mined amethyst pieces. Careful consideration is given to the natural resource, taking into account the color, shape, and quality grade of each piece to ensure that it is used to its fullest potential.
Once the amethyst pieces have been selected and organized, they are then curated and sorted into categories. The curating and sorting process is arguably the most important step in the refining process, as it allows us to identify and highlight the truly special and one-of-a-kind specimens that come out of the mines.
These special specimens are then handpicked and undergo further evaluation and treatment, if necessary, to showcase their unique characteristics and to bring out their full beauty.
We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and the care that we take in every step of the refining process. From the initial selection and organization of the mined amethyst pieces to the curating and sorting process and final evaluation, we ensure that each and every piece of Uruguayan amethyst that we produce is of the highest quality and truly one-of-a-kind.
Our refining process makes sure that we are able to present the unique beauty that the natural resource has to offer while also maintaining the integrity of the specimen and its natural aesthetic. We aim to provide our customers with amethysts that are not only beautiful but also ethically and sustainably sourced.
