Sterling Silver Amethyst & Marcasite Ring

$35.00 This vintage sterling silver, amethyst and marcasite ring will never go out of style! Circa 1980's. The stone is a light purple, not as dark as it seems from the pictures. Pictured as received from a local estate. February born girls will love the amethyst stone set in the dome of the ring which is quite different! It is SIZE 8 and weighs 8.4 grams. Excellent condition. No missing stones. Amazing ring! Nice patina.

History: It is the birthstone for February. There myths which attribute certain powers to the stone. The name amethyst is from the Ancient Greek words a- (not) and methustos (intoxicated). The Greeks and Romans would make mugs from an amethyst cluster with the belief that it would prevent them from becoming drunk. Another legend is that it would protect the wearer from harm, but only if they showed bravery so it became a popular stone for soldiers. In ancient times it was associated with the Hebrew religion as a symbol of the Spirit of God. During the Renaissance the meaning changed to humility and modesty.

Healing properties: Some believe that it is a calming stone and that the healing properties are of the blood and breathing. Amethyst cleanses the blood, helping substance abuse and fevers and the calming effect helps breathing.
