These pretty earrings are made with faceted amethyst drops and faceted peridot rounds. The wire used, including the ear wire (shepherd’s hooks), is gold coated sterling silver.
Amethyst, February’s birthstone, is a very popular gemstone – both for its beauty and for its properties. In crystal healing, amethyst is believed to ease pain, reduce stress, strengthen the immune system and be good for the heart, skin, lungs, headaches, arthritis and insomnia. Known as “nature’s tranquilizer”, it is also said to bring contentment, calm and peace and to help remove bad habits.
Peridot, August’s birthstone, is believed to reduce stress and be a tonic for body and mind. It’s also a good anti-toxin gem, a powerful cleanser. The lovely green stone sharpens the mind and opens it to new levels of awareness.
