Deep purple coloured amethyst crystal crafted as a ladies pendant in fine sterling silver. Birthstone for the month of February, amethyst is one of the most popular and highly sought after varieties of the mineral quartz. Its tantalizing colour is caused primarily by the presence of iron but if exposed to sunlight or heat for long periods of time it will quickly fade.
Without the benefit of light this amethyst crystal can appear to be almost black. As more light is introduced the stone's true magnificence quickly becomes apparent. No post production adjustments have been made to the shade or depth of colour. Our first three photos were taken under studio lighting whilst the fourth was taken in front of a sunny window.
When used for healing amethyst aids spirituality and contentment, clears the aura and brings stability, strength and peace. It may be used during meditation for its calming and peaceful energies and with it comes serenity and composure.
The amethyst cabochons that we feature in our collection of necklace pendants come from India, South Africa and Australia. This tantalizing crystal sits in a hand-crafted sterling silver setting and to minimise any build-up of tarnish, we recommend it be polished occasionally with a silver polishing cloth. Keeping silver gemstone jewellery covered with soft material will help to keep the silver bright and the crystal safe from unwanted marks and scratches. The gift pouch that comes with this ladies amethyst pendant is perfect for this very purpose.
