Description

This round amethyst gemstone bead is scored from top to bottom, giving the bead a corrugated look. The textured finish provides an attractive light-catching quality that looks great when used for pendants, drops and earrings. The bead is half-drilled, making this bead an ideal choice for pendant and earring designs, either used individually or combined with an assortment of other colors of gemstone beads and pearls—it looks especially good with silver findings. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead on a peg.

Amethyst is the best known and most valuable form of quartz. The light-to-dark purple color of natural amethyst is caused by iron or manganese compound impurities in the mineral and can range from a watercolor pale pink to a dark, almost opaque, purple. Named for the Greek word for “sober,” amethyst was believed to remedy drunkeness. As a crystal, amethyst is credited with relieving stress and promoting peace of mind.
