Arizona Four Peaks Amethyst

Arizona Amethyst Mine Tour | Mine History Tour FAQ Dates & Pricing
 

Did you know that Arizona is home to the only commercially run Amethyst mine in the United States?

The Four Peaks mine, located about 46 miles outside of Phoenix, is one of the last remaining truly "old school" mines. To preserve the local wilderness and wildlife, no motor vehicles are allowed onsite. Painstaking care is taken for the land, which is why amethyst rough and supplies for the miners are transported exclusively by helicopter. The miners, too, live on the wild side. They hike up the side of the Matatzal (nicknamed "Four Peaks") mountains and camp for one to two weeks at a time with no electricity or running water. Truly, no other gemstone is as beloved as The Arizona Four Peaks Amethyst. From the use of hand tools to extract the stone, to the hand-sorting and cleaning by a local company in Scottsdale, the admiration for this gem and the earth that produces it is clear.

This magnificent Arizona gemstone is stunning in quality and intensity of color, with a dark purple hue and red-magenta flash. Sami's is a proud dealer of Arizona amethyst, and carries a huge selection of jewelry and loose stones for your collection.
