AMETHYST, CITRINE
17th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
(or Furniture, Amethyst & Citrine Gemstone)



Top of the list for traditional 17th wedding anniversary gift ideas are amethyst or citrine stones, made into any kind of rings, necklaces or earrings. Once upon a time, amethysts were a much more precious stone, but recent discoveries of huge deposits in Brazil had the value of the stone plummeting – right into the scope of all of us. Hurrah!

Most of us have been to shops selling crystals and seen rocks split in half with a veritable grotto of amethyst crystal inside. Relatively cheap but so beautiful that even those men who would be aghast at the thought of wearing amethyst jewelry, smile at the thought of their own little amethyst grotto (raw amethyst cave or geode) as a 17th anniversary gift.  The colour of Raw Amethyst Cave - Geodethe crystals range from a pale lilac to the highest grade called a Deep Russian which is still considered a precious stone.

Citrine (also in demand for 17th anniversary gifts), is actually a type of naturally heated amethyst or smoky quartz) For naturally heated, think volcanic or high pressure. Today, most of the citrine – like amethyst - comes from Brazil and is commercially heated. The stone ranges in colour from pale yellow to brown and is likewise suitable for jewelry and therefore 17th wedding anniversary gifts.

The modern gift alternative to amethyst and citrine is furniture. Sounds very practical to me. Certainly there are no shortage of suggestions ranging from bookshelves to lounge suites or antique tables and cabinets. The good thing about good antique furniture is that it is as much an investment as is a good spouse. (We also improve with age!) Of course, if you can find an antique amethyst bookshelf, you’d really have my attention. Just kidding.
