Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience. When in yoga class I notice many of the students wearing this stone in bracelets or amethyst beaded mala for protection, and to guard the mind from negative thought.

I was going through my stock of amethyst and came across this particular bead. The different shades that occur naturally in is this stone created a very unique shape. I am totally in love with it. The shape reminds me of a shield; most likely I will make it into a necklace with it being the center focal bead.  I am in the process of making some really nice amethyst earrings, in the meantime please feel free to check out my amazing amethyst bracelets that are currently available, links listed below.
