Aspen Bracelet - Amethyst

Regular price $75.00

I describe the Aspen bracelet as a mixture of structured style and bohemian freedom.  The use of suede leather brings a casual, free-spirit feeling, but the structure of the beading and the hardware of the closure brings a bit of refinement. 

These bracelets are wonderful by themselves, in combination with another style or stacked with other colors.  

More than a foot of leather is used in these bracelets, which are then combined with genuine gemstones.  You can adjust the fit of the bracelet by pulling on the leather ends in opposite directions.

 

Amethyst 

Amethyst comes form the Greek meaning "without drunkenness" it has been believed to protect people from poison.  Catholic Bishops were known to wear   rings with Amethyst stones to help prevent them from getting intoxicated on mystical or spiritual thinking.  It has been called the 'Bishop's Stone'

Amethyst has a long history in many cultures, to the Hebrews, it was Ahlamah, the ninth stone in the breastplate of the High Priest, engraved with the tribe of Dan, as well as the twelfth foundation stone for the New Jerusalem. 

Egyptians, called it Hemag, listed in the Book of the Dead to be set into heart-shaped amulets for burial.  In other Eastern cultures, it was used in temple offerings for worship, and to align planetary and astrological influences.

The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom. It is one of the most popular gemstones.  The properties of Amethyst have been said to to allow for the expansion of the mind, enhancing creativity.  Strengthening intuition and the thinking processes.  People have also called it the stone of focus and success.

 

Is all that true?  

I have researched these stones, and to the best of my ability share with you what I believe to be the most accurate information.  We can verify much of the science such as chemical make-ups, interactions, and practical uses, but beyond that I can only share the recorded history regarding believed spiritual attributes associated with the stones.

I believe humans are drawn to rocks, crystals and gemstones because they are made up of some of the very same minerals that are in our own bodies.  They are elemental, naturally beautiful and we connect with them on some basic level, even if that level is just that we think they're gorgeous and unique.  They have been incorporated into every culture and civilization throughout the earth's history.

Personally, I love learning the history of these stones, how they were used, what people believed they could do, and where they were found in the world. I think their crystalline structures, chemical make-ups, and how they are formed within the earth is truly magical, but beyond that I just love looking at them and have a hunch you do too.  So let's just enjoy them, don't over think it.  

 

*Stone attributes are never to be substituted for medical advice, please always use common sense and seek professional medical advice for any medical issues.  Buying our beads and stones will not cure you of anything, but they will improve your outfit and that's got to count for something.*
