This is a simple but elegant necklace. It is a large nugget of the gemstone amethyst attached to a silver plated chain. The nugget measures approximately 15mm in width and 10mm in height and is a light purple colour. The amethyst has been faceted and smoothed.
The chain is a delicate silver plated trace chain that measures 18" in length and fastens with a lobster claw clasp.
The necklace comes in a presentation box.
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and the most valued member of the quartz family. It must be purple to be amethyst, but it can display a range of shades including deep purple, light lilac, lavender and mauve. Top quality amethyst is a deep medium purple with rose-coloured flashes.
Most amethyst gemstones on sale today are heat-treated to produce a deeper colour. Heat treating is permanent and these stones will not fade over time.
Amethyst is the official birthstone for February. It is also the birth stone for the Zodiac sign of Pisces. Amethyst is suggested as a gem to give on the 4th, 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries.
