This is a stunning natural gemstone necklace. The raw amethyst pendant is large and has different shades of purple due to the jaggedness of the stone – beautifully imperfect. The silver snake chain is 925 silver plated, has a beautiful shine to it and displays the pendant perfectly. The necklace is a real eye-catcher, and a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.
Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and it is classified as a semiprecious stone. The colour is purple, ranging from a light purple or lilac to a deep purple. Some stones have a reddish tint. Amethysts are hard (a hardness of seven on the Mohs scale), durable gems and have been used for various kinds of jewellery for at least 2000 years.
Amethysts have been associated with healing, serenity, understanding, trust and grace. The purple colour is a symbol of peace cleansing and calming energy. Amethysts are believed to protect the bearer against negative energies and bring clarity, calm and peacefulness.
Our jewellery comes from trusted sources and family owned or small manufacturers that are paid fairly and have safe and good working conditions. The Little Vegan Shop applies Mirlando’s Code of Business Ethics and our producer share the same business outlook.
Care Recommendations: Amethysts should not be exposed to water for long periods of time as it can cause damage. After cleansing it’s best to tap it dry or put it on a towel to allow the sun to dry it.
