Aura Amethyst Touchstone
IRIDESCENT + COLORFUL + LUSTROUS
Each piece of this stunning Angel Aura Amethyst has been hand treated with a thin coating of platinum and silver to give this already beautiful Amethyst an iridescent gleam.
Amethyst’s use in rudimentary jewelry can be traced back as far as the Neolithic period (approximately 4,000 BC) and samples of it set into gold rings have been uncovered in burial sites from around 2,400 BC.
Amethyst, the birthstone for February, is one of our most popular gemstone materials. Amethyst forms in long, prismatic crystals in geodes or hallow rocks. These geodes form when there are cavities in volcanic rock. As the rock cools, the mineral-saturated water, gases and volcanic material distill and crystallize. When these crystals harden, they form amethyst. Although generally more of a deeper purple, the stone can also have a reddish-purple tinge, or a very pale purple tinge that fades into a lilac.
Why we love these: Amethyst has been a highly regarded stone for thousands of years and we love the beautiful colors these stones have to offer!
