Meditate with Amethyst --February's Magical Birthstone

Is amethyst your birthstone?? Lucky you! Amethyst is the perfect healing stone! It is accessible to many and super gorgeous. Wear it to live in the present and get rich!

Amethyst is a chakra stone -- linked to the crown chakra. Meditate with it! It will help you clear your mind and assist in purging negativity, stress, and anxiety. (This is why you often see amethyst geodes in Spas and Wellness Centers.) Amethyst is also associated with prosperity and money. The amethyst properties which facilitate intuition and communication can also be applied to increased work effectiveness. Therefore this stone is said to help with money worries and job woes.

We are lucky that Amethyst is so abundant on earth -- found almost everywhere -- therefore quite affordable. Amethyst is natural quartz and gets its color from irradiation at the earth’s crust. While amethyst is usually recognizable as purple, the gemstone ranges from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple -- the darker the purple the more prized. We have evidence that Ancient Greeks used Amethyst in jewelry as long as 25,000 years ago. The name comes from the Ancient Greek, derived from the word “methustos,” which means “intoxicated.” Ancient wearers believed it could protect them from drunkenness.

At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, we’re not sure if amethyst will protect you from drunkenness … but we love the part about affordability and beauty! The amethyst in the Ultra Violet Ring is AAA Grade and stunning! We also love the design of this ring. It harkens back to the Purple Haze Ring from the Royals Collection but is smaller in stature and very graceful. The mixed metals are here to stay for a bit and the gold and silver together is fantastic in this ring! (14KTGF) An exciting new design -- available in Amethyst, Labradorite, and Moonstone.

That little pop of coral red or orange was a consistent feature of many Native American jewelry traditions -- especially the Zuni inlaid stuff. I always thought that was coral ... It was only recently that I realized it was spiny oyster shell.

What is design?

When you ask an architect to come into your home and help you design a project, she will ask you what problems you want to solve.

I am a jewelry designer. What problems can I possibly solve with jewelry design? How to strap rocks to our body and look nice while we’re doing it? We've been doing it since the beginning of time, after all.
