Tiny dark purple amethyst set in 14 kt gold ear studs
There are many shades of amethyst. This particular pair of amethysts is a clear, dark, vivid purple that contrasts strongly with the 14 kt gold ear posts they are set in. The rich, elegant color makes them perfect for wear at parties or an evening out. Or as the perfect birthday gift!
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 3mm and set in 14 kt gold. The gemstones are rated at A grade in quality.
