Deep within the earth is a gemstone known as Amethyst. This gem is a variety of quartz found mainly in Brazil and Uruguay. The purple color is formed when trace amounts of iron seep into the growing quartz crystal.
These earring feature heart shaped textured sterling silver and free form deep purple amethyst gems.
Each component, including the ear wire is handmade by me in my Arizona Studio
2 1/4 " long. Gift wrapped in a silver pouch with 'Buried Treasure' romance card.
Care: use a jewelry or microfiber cloth to keep the design bright.
Did you know? Greeks believed that drinking wine from a cup made of amethyst would make them immune to intoxication! The name is derived from the Greek word amethustos, meaning not drunk.
