Amanda's Amethyst Style File
I am thrilled to share that Original Eve's Amethyst Formation Necklace has been included in National Jeweler's ode to Amethyst in Amanda's February Style File.
The Amethyst Formation Necklace features a pear-shaped cabochon of amethyst suspended from an 18k yellow gold chain using the Amazon leaf component.
Amethyst is the most prized and valuable member of the quartz species.
As amethyst grows in its hexagonal format, various conditions in the environment may interrupt the growth, causing unique geometric lines of color, crystals forming within the crystal, and other beautiful signs that tell the tale of its creation. Amethyst is almost always heat treated to help reduce bands of color zoning, a common attribute of the gem caused by natural changes in the growth pattern of the crystal.
This unique gemstone was not heat treated and therefore displays a beautiful spoke-pattern in a range of purples from pale lilac to a deep royal purple.
The pendant is made in 18k Yellow Gold with a matte satin finish.
