What formation is your "Amethyst". Is it a cluster, points, or polished tumble stone, etc? The beautiful Vera Cruz Amethyst is very pale, the same goes for the Rose de France Amethyst. I recently purchased what they called "Lilac Quartz". I have yet to find out what the difference is between "Lilac Quartz" and pale Amethyst. If yours definitely has Smokey Quartz in it, it may be a Smokey Amethyst. Amethysts can have zoned colours and the patented name of "Super Seven" lists other minerals apart from Amethyst and Smokey Quartz. The varieties are indeed endless and beautiful and you can never have too many :-).
