Hand stamped, pierced and sawn sterling silver made with traditional jewelry making techniques and methods to more accurately resemble an antique relic by design. Reversible, both sides of this pendant are designed. The pendant hangs from a 17" long antique finished sterling silver chain with a toggle clasp.
Total pendant length is about 2 3/8" long from chain. Amethyst cabochon stone length on this piece is approximately 1 1/2" long, top to bottom.
Some say Amethyst has the power to bring clarity and peacefulness in both the waking and sleeping mind. It is believed to instill a serious and sober mind and guard against drunkenness. I am not an expert on any of this but I hope there is some truth to this because that would amazing and fun.
What I can tell you for sure is that THIS Amethyst is from India, acquired from when I used to work for gem and stone dealer. Amethyst is a crystalline quartz found in alluvial deposits or in geodes. Highest quality amethyst is cut into gems, the rest is often tumbled into beads or shaped into cabochons like this beauty here.
