Amethyst was comparatively rare until the vast deposits of Brazil started to be mined. The amethyst geode below is prized by New Age crystal healers.
The one of a kind jewellery pieces below were designed by Gregory Pyra.
This is gold worked by hand. It has a faceted amethyst and an opal set on a piece of amethyst geode and hung from a string of pearls.
This is also gold worked by hand as against being cast in a mould. It has an oval faceted amethyst with a baroque faceted ametrine (amethyst/citrine combination).
I always did like Saturdays.
