Amethyst comes in many shades. For this pretty bracelet I’ve mixed lavender amethyst rounds with vibrant violet Zambian amethyst and rainbow coated stones, all in 8mm rounds. The bracelet, which is made on elastic cord, measures just over 7 inches (18.5 cms). A sterling silver bead covers the knot in the elastic. Matching earrings are available.
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.
