Light purple amethyst ovals in sterling silver - the birthstone for February
This is a beautiful medium purple set of amethyst earrings! The gemstones came from a mixed packet and I was lucky enough to find two that matched perfectly! (Finding matched gemstones is harder than you might think….) The purple color is bright and rich, with a hint of banding. The purple goes well with the sterling silver of the settings. Wear these earrings every day or to a party or celebration!
Amethysts are a purple variety of quartz. The purple comes from trace amounts of iron in the crystal. (Citrine’s yellow color also comes from trace amounts of iron in quartz, the conditions in which the crystal formed are a little different!) Amethysts are found all over the world but some of the prettiest come from Brazil, Russia and parts of Africa. I have always loved the large geodes lined with amethyst crystals that are mined in Brazil.
Amethysts are the birthstone for February and the Zodiac stone for Pisces.
These amethysts are 6 by 4 mm and set in sterling silver. The gemstones are banded but well matched with good color.
