This wonderful, free form slice of natural Amethyst has been handset using the finest silversmithing techniques. The silver wraps the stone, Making it look like it is actually part of the stone. Such fine craftsmanship.
A beautiful purple form of Quartz, Amethyst has been used in jewellery for centuries. I has an interesting history, the ancient Greeks believed it could prevent intoxication and Medieval Europeans used it in battle to keep them calm and focused. It was believed to have strong protective qualities.
We still use Amethyst for calming the emotions and reducing stress levels but it is also used for protection and to encourage insight. It is the stone that relates to the 7th chakra, Sahasra or the Crown chakra. As such it is used to connect us with the Universe and to induce higher states of consciousness.
