A beautiful pair of earrings with amethyst and green aventurine accented by base metal and silver-plated beads. These two renowned healing and protective stones are united in one place. Some may use these for health and protection, others, may think of amethyst's reputation for preventing intoxication and aventurine's for luck in gambling and decide that they are the perfect lucky earrings for a night out.
Amethyst is a key gem in Western magical traditions. It was prized by the Greeks who believed it prevented intoxication. Some associate amethyst with the element of fire while others have attributed it to water. These divergent attributions hint at the wide variety of uses to which amethyst has been put, from protection against evil and theft to preventing insomnia and nightmares and engendering a sense of peace and well being. Whatever their attributions and properties, the beauty of these raw crystals cannot be denied.
Aventurine is associated both with prosperity and luck and also with sight and the thymus gland. Its purported virtues are many--heart, lung, and liver health; emotional recovery; and more. A piece is often kept in cash boxes to ensure prosperity and gamblers often wear or carry aventurine for luck.
