Artisans in Tennessee use slices of amethyst-centered stalactites mined in Uruguay to create a necklace that's a one-of-a-kind conversation piece. Stalactites are dripstones that form on the roof of limestone caves, as water drips and minerals build up over thousands of years. The stone is edged with 18k-gold-plated copper and hangs from a necklace made of gold wire links.

Handmade in the U.S. 18"L, pendant: approximately 2" diam. and 1/8" thick. Toggle clasp.


One of the most striking members of the quartz family, violet hued amethyst has a place in traditions and beliefs of cultures from ancient Israel to modern day Tibet. Ancient Greek folk belief held that if one drank wine from an amethyst cup, it would prevent intoxication, and in many cultures it represents purity, clarity of mind, and chastity. A favorite of royalty, England's early 18th-century Queen Charlotte had a world famous amethyst bracelet and Russian empress Catherine the Great employed thousands of miners to extract the gem from Russia's Ural Mountains, which still yields some of the finest examples. In Tibetan Buddhism, amethyst rosaries are believed to enhance focus and inspire clear-sighted intelligence, an essential state of mind for those pursuing enlightenment.

Remains of many 2,000-year-old drinking glasses, vases, and jugs continue to be uncovered across the former Roman Empire, especially in Israel. Each glass medallion in this remarkable necklace was once part of an object that was created more than two millennia ago.
