Wire Wrapped Natural Amethyst Pendant

Amethyst is a type of quartz. typically forms in crystal clusters in geodes. Amethyst can also be found opencast in veins and in druzy cavities in larger rocks.  The size and color of the points vary, which dictates the value of the stone. 
In a geode example

you can see the points, or 'teeth' and how they fit together like a puzzle piece.

If a large geode is broken or dropped the points can fall out of the geode
providing a beautiful sample to wrap!

Thus is the case with this piece of amethyst. I have a collection of points that I use to wrap as jewelry, pendulums or to use as a pocket stone or a stone for a medicine bag. 

This made a really big, fun pendant with a simple hippie wrap. 
Amethyst is and artist stone, promoting creativity. 
The shape of this stone, the textures, the lines not only peak a creative interest in me, but also satisfy a my tactile nature. 

How do you keep your amethyst points? In your pocket, in a pouch as a pendant?
Inquiring minds want to know!

and remember, be peaceful, and be kind, it's important!!

All of my jewelry creations are based on the metaphysical properties of the stones or the colors that are incorporated. Jewelry should be a window to our soul, a protector of our emotions and a companion to our spirit. All of my other creations come directly from my heart in hopes they touch yours as well. Celebrate yourself with healing jewelry, and other gift ideas made with love!
