A modern abstract design in brightly polished Sterling silver features a large AAA Amethyst flower. An Amethyst point forms part of the bail attached to an 18" silver chain. The Amethyst flower is actually a cross-section of a Brazilian Amethyst stalactite which are now protected and not available for jewelry, etc. This is a particularly good quality crystal because of its even shape and distinctive dark centre which has a green border ring and interestingly marked middle.
Amethyst is the purple form of quartz and is plentiful in Canada, particularly from Thunder Bay, Ontario. The most highly colour saturated Amethyst comes from Brazil. It is considered by some to have a calming and mood stabilizing influence. Spiritually it is thought to enhance intuition and psychic abilities.
