Ladies amethyst pendant featuring a rich purple coloured gemstone mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting. As well as boasting impressive colour, this amethyst cabochon is highly translucent so when held up towards the light the detail that can be seen within the stone is truly fascinating.
The colour of amethyst (purple quartz) is caused by impurities of iron and manganese and it has been used as a gemstone for thousands of years. Some of the world's finest stones can be found in famous jewellery collections around the world and the British Crown Jewels includes an enormous amethyst in the Royal Sceptre with the Cross.
As well as being one of the most popular of all gemstones, amethyst is also the birthstone for the month of February.
The reason this amethyst pendant has been reduced is because there are some minor anomalies on the left side of the stone. Some of these are due to inclusions but there's also a very minor chip on the surface of the stone that's smaller than a pin head. This exceptional ladies amethyst pendant would suit someone who loves wearing coloured gemstones and is not bothered about a minor flaw. Available at an unbeatable price for a stone of this quality, it's sure to be a much loved piece that will enjoy plenty of wear.
