Coveted for centuries, vibrant purple amethyst is simply a beautiful gemstone. Most often found in a gorgeous shade of violet, amethyst does occasionally have some color variation. For example, the gemstone sometimes includes more noticeable red or blue undertones. And, a unique Brazilian amethyst, popular during the Victorian era, is found in a pale shade of lilac-pink and is known as Rose de France Amethyst. But whichever color you favor, amethyst is always brilliant, sparkling, and luminescent. This stunning semi-precious gem is also the birthstone for February.
Amethyst is found globally – across Canada, in Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, and the United States, as well as Zambia, Namibia and other African countries. It is also naturally occurring in Greece, throughout the Middle East, and in Italy.
An amethyst is more than just beautiful, however, and is considered to be a powerful stone in the world of natural healing. The gemstone has long been associated with restful sleep and mental clarity. In fact, according to Sitara Jewelry in the article, ‘6 Healing Gemstones That Can Help You Navigate Tough Times,’ “Amethyst is a powerful healing stone that is incredibly versatile. Not only can it help to balance emotions, but it can also be used to increase your productivity. You can place amethyst in your car, office, or home, and reap the benefits of its many uses.”
I am a lifelong fan of the stone. And in addition to some of my personal faves like my Amethyst Serenity Lamp and Raw Crystal Amethyst Bracelet, both from Conscious Items, I absolutely adore the Amethyst and Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings by Sitara Jewelry, pictured.
These stunners are artisan-crafted of gleaming sterling silver, accented with sparkling faceted amethyst stones. They are a lovely addition to anything from an upscale office outfit, to casual weekend wear. Retail: $36.00
