STONES: Amethyst is the purple variety of the mineral quartz. It has been prized since the times of ancient Greece. Today much of the amethyst on the market comes from Brazil, Uruguay, and Russia, although it also can be found in South Korea, Canada and USA. Even in today's metaphysical circles amethyst is considered a powerful stone. It is believed to cleanse spaces of negative energies, creating a suitable space for spiritual enlightenment. It also is known to calm excessive emotions and help to clear the mind of distractions.
Quartz is known as the "Universal Crystal", and it is a popular and powerful stone. Metaphysically, quartz is thought to enhance, balance, store, focus, and transmit energy. It is also a stone of clarity, and can increase inspiration and creativity. It is also useful to improve concentration and retention of knowledge.
SIZE: 1 5/8 inches x 1/2 inch
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver plated snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches. 16 inches is the default option, just add a "message to seller" at checkout if you prefer 20 inches. The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant in the Chain Section starting at $15.
CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Quartz is a hard, durable stone, so it can be cleaned in a solution formulated to clean metals and nonporous gemstones, such as Hagerty Jewel Clean to keep your silver bright. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
