A beautiful Amethyst bracelet, soothing to the mind and body.
This bracelet is Amethyst. Amethyst is a quartz with a purple hue. The purple is given by the combination of manganese, iron to clear quartz, ranging from light purple to deep purple, almost black.
It has long been associated with the month of February and royalty. Amethyst has an interesting history. It is from an old Greek work meaning "not drunk." Ancient Greeks use to believe that this little purple gem could keep them from over indulgence. The alcoholic anonymous association has adopted the Amethyst as the stone of sobriety. Thus Amethyst has long been associated with the ability to give up bad habits. It was worn by bishops to give up their earthly habits and free them to pursue their spiritual nature. Amethyst is the stone for connecting with your spiritual nature.
