Sometimes it can be wonderful to own a beautiful piece of jewelry that's a little different than most of what you see out there. While we can all appreciate a vibrant red ruby or a rich green diamond, something that's a bit more distinctive can make more of an impact on your heart. The haunting beauty of the Amethyst Quartz is one such stone, and its enchanting violet tone is best displayed in a pair of Amethyst Quartz earrings.
While we wear it as jewelry nowadays, Amethyst Quartz was believed by the Ancient Greeks to be a material that could protect a person from becoming drunk. They believed this so much that they even carved wine goblets from Amethyst Quartz, although we of course now know that it simply didn't have those abilities. Many different European cultures used to wear a piece of Amethyst Quartz when fighting, as they believed that the stone would protect them.
The distinctive violet coloring of the stone makes for a truly distinctive piece of jewelry, and Amethyst Quartz earrings will make a much loved addition to anyone's accessory collection, and the subtle tones of violet, which can also include slivers of deeper purple will accentuate any look you might go for, whether it's a formal or casual occasion.
Your new Amethyst Quartz earrings can be quite sensitive to light, and over the course of many years, they can lose some of their color if left in sunlight. While they'll still remain beautiful, it's a good idea to store them in a dark place- that is, if you find yourself able to take them off!
