This pretty necklace is fashioned from cape amethyst and clear quartz. Cape amethyst is a beautiful form of amethyst that is opaque to translucent, with white snow quartz visible through it. The amethyst beads are set off with clear quartz cubes for a little sparkle. The amethyst is graduated in color from the lightest in the middle, to the darkest near the clasp. The necklace is approximately 22" long, and is completely knotted for security. It fastens with a sterling silver filigree ball clasp.
