These simple amethyst dangle earrings are an example of what is meant by "less is more." Faceted amethyst spheres in a generous 10 mm size are wrapped with tiny leafy beadcaps and corrugated rondelles and hung from sterling stick findings. They dangle 1 1/2 inches below the sterling earwire. They come supplied with soft rubber earnuts to keep them securely in place and ziplock bags to prevent tarnish.
Revered for millennia as the "Great Healer" gemstone, amethyst carries with it the gift of opening one to the wisdom of the ages. One source indicates that DaVinci himself believed and wrote that this glorious stone not only aided in intellectual pursuits, but also protected the wearer from harm.
Indeed, amethyst has been one of the most prolific stones used as amulets talismans throughout history! Along with other varieties of quartz, this lovely violet stone is also associated with the world's great spiritual Teachers, especially the Buddha, although one branch of "new age" thought also calls it the "Christ" Ray, after the great Teacher who came 500 years after the Buddha.
Modern metaphysicians and occultists refer to the Violet Ray, as violet is the fastest vibrating color our human eyes can see of the spectrum; the wealth of qualities which amethyst brings includes assisting one in living by right action, helping one to balance out from mental chaos and remain grounded, even in the face of danger, addiction, overwhelming thought forms, with wisdom as the desired and hopefully-attained result. The two stone of the Brow Chakra help one in opening the Crown as well, drawing in highest spiritual vibrations to aid in our quest to become the kind of souls to which our highest selves can aspire.
One thing to keep in mind is that "occult" (from the Latin word for eye), simply means "hidden" or that which is not generally known by the public, but is studied by those who seek the Mysteries.
All of our items are one of a kind, hand-crafted and designed with a true love of the glorious gemstones of Mother Earth. Thank you for looking, and Brightest Blessings!
