Hi- I have had a strand of amethyst beads since the 70's or 80's, and have just unstrung them to use in bracelets. With better magnification, they are a lovely fairly uniform dark purple, but they have subtle swirls or patches of lighter purple. Some of the beads have cracks. There are no bubbles. I'm not so sure these beads are amethyst. Can someone tell me what they might be? Thank you
