Amethyst Crystal Point Necklace
A cut amethyst point, capped with a gorgeous sterling crown bail. I just set the stone and did not create the bail part.
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz. The word comes from greek "amethystos",- not, and "methyo"- intoxicate because the Greeks believed it helped prevent drunkenness somehow. It is a hard stone,so it makes strong jewelry and rings.
It's just a pretty stone and doesn't have such magical powers as making it not possible to get drunk. I wear it all the time,and trust me it doesn't work :P
This stone has lots of sparkly spots inside.
It is a traditional birthstone for February, and in the medieval age it was a stone for royalty.
Chain length: 18 inches, sterling silver, stamped 925.
