It’s gorgeous! I think it looks like a light blue topaz. Amethyst comes in light green and the obvious purple, but I’ve never seen or heard of blue before. I could be wrong.

Blue Amethys is a dark purple/blue so definitely not an Amethyst. It’s either an Aquamarine, Apatite or Topaz.

I’ve never gotten anything that pretty out of a candle! Nice! Looks like topaz to me. 🙂

nurseybee55 :  Amethyst is a quartz and when heat treated, can turn bluish green. There are also some naturally occuring quartzes in that color but most likely this started life as a purple amethyst and the color is from heat treatment. Very pretty!

Ah — just saw your update. I wouldn’t be too confident in their new identification. They’re pretty close on the mohs scale, so care would be the same anyways. And still pretty in either case!
