Amethyst, that irresistible purple variety of Quartz, which owes its luscious colouration mainly to irradiation (yes light!) and impurities of iron, is the focal stone of these little purple & royal blue stunners. The Greek word "amethystos" literally means "not drunken". So yes, amethyst was considered to be a strong antidote against drunkenness and that is why wine goblets were often carved from it. Apologies – the earrings won’t help with this.
But the serious splash of purple can boost your spirit; it can remind you of that last colourful holiday …or simply to turn that simple outfit into something altogether more stunning. The most brilliant blue Lapis Lazuli is paired with a faceted Amethyst from Tanzania and supported by tiny faceted Agates and Sea Glass.
