Amethyst is nestled in a nest of hand wrapped Sterling Silver wire. These studs are a simple but elegant way to wear stones from the earth. They are a highly sought opaque medium-dark color of Amethyst.
Amethyst is the official birthstone of February. It forms in silica-rich liquids deposited in geodes and is found in clusters of crystal points. The stone's name is derived from the Greek word amethystos, meaning "not drunken," because people of ancient times believed it to protect the wearer from drunkenness.
Amethyst is often used during meditation to provide an overall sense of spiritual balance.
