Hi ladies,

this may be a strange question, but is it ok to photograph an amethyst with flash?

I heard that they would bleach out when exposed to light. I've photographed my amethyst necklace many times with flash and wonder if that will have any (long term) consequences?

TIA!

Don't worry, the flash will not do any damage tithe stone or its color whatsoever! Photograph away:smile: and post some pics for us!)

I, too, am a gemologist and have never heard of such a thing.
