This stunning and unusual 18 mm faceted chevron amethyst pendant suspended on a 26” sterling silver amethyst gemstone chain. Amethyst is a beautiful purple stone, known as a “Gem of Fire” by ancient cultures. It has been greatly sought after throughout history and was at times valued as highly as Diamond. Today, this semi-precious variety of quartz is found in many locations around the world. The presence of Manganese within the stone produces the purple hue, and variation of the amount of iron in the stone creates a color range from reddish purple to deep violet to light lilac. The name derives from the Greek word for “not intoxicated” and was once believed to prevent drunkenness and overindulgence. Chevron Amethyst is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rocks. The bubble becomes a hollow space in the igneous rock and the silica acid becomes Quartz crystals. Chevron-Amethyst is a combination of White Quartz and Amethyst, mixed to form a V-banded or striped pattern. It’s usually a beautiful lavender, purple, or white in color. This bracelet has a beautiful rhinestone magnetic clasp with a sterling silver guard chain to prevent loss.
