Heat amethyst?

I have heard that amethyst is heated to bring out it's beauty. I have just bought some rough amethyst on eBay. How is it heated? How hot should it get? Do I hit it with a torch or somehow else heat it?

I am a silversmith and have an acetylene torch, but am hesitant to heat it with that until I know how hot it should get.
