From our Mother Ocean Collection, this is a delicate pair of earrings that starts with a slender triangle of creamy shell. A round faceted amethyst is perched in the center, and the earring is topped by a lovely, amethyst-hued color-enhanced cultured freshwater pearl. Corrugated silver rondelles add sparkle. They hang 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the sterling earwire. Since Ruby Lane will not allow us to list these at a lower price, please be sure to take advantage of the "make an offer" feature!
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 his- and herstory! 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.)
Pearls are stones of the Mother Goddess in her oceanic form. Stones of the Moon as well, these pearls do look like a shining full moon misted by cirrus clouds, with a gorgeous peacock-like display of light and color! Calming, soothing, as the ultimate Mother would, pearls bring with them feelings of nurturance and emotional balance, and a strong connection to all women, whether the anima within men, one's Sisters, Lovers, Mothers, the Goddess within in all her wo-manifestations!
Like moonstones, mother of pearl has always been associated with the psychic and Spiritual realms, representing the Element of water and the ocean. It facilitates psychic receptivity, brings protection,especially to women, and encourages the balance of the Sacred Feminine within men as well. The stone helps one to be emotionally and psychically open, yet balanced, and brings unconditional love into the psychic mix. Mother of pearl grows in so many lovely colors, and its irridescent sheen complements a wide variety of dress style and hue.
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!
