True trapiche gems have inclusions between growth sections. However, simple color zoning or inclusion growth within a crystal can create “trapiche-like” patterns in some gems. This means that the crystal of these trapiche-like gems is continuous, whereas in true trapiches the mineral is broken up into sectors which grow individually.
Still, these gems have the stunning symmetry associated with trapiche gems and are also immensely rare. The same minerals that form true trapiches may form trapiche-like color zoning or, in the case of rutilated quartz, spectacular patterned inclusions. In addition, diamond and pezzottaite can grow into trapiche-like gems.
Minerals with less symmetric crystal habits may also form trapiche-like gems. For example, trapiche-like rhodochrosite occurs in Argentina.
Natural amethyst is a purple color variety of crystalline quartz. It owes its violet color due to natural irradiation of iron impurities. In some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities. The presence of trace elements result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. Also, the hardness of the mineral is the same as quartz. Thus it is suitable for use in jewelry with affordable price.
