Tomorrow's Treasures, Loved Today

When I saw this pendant in a little shop in Ko Samui, Thailand, it just spoke to me. Now, 6 months later, I have finally figured out just how to showcase this beauty. A scrolled frame of sterling silver wraps around two faceted round green Peridot gemstones, two brilliant purple, faceted oval Amethyst gemstones and a smooth oval, pale green Prehnite gemstone. The size of this pendant is 1 3/8" at it's widest and 2 1/4" long.
The beaded necklace is made up of faceted rondelles of pale, grass green Prehnite and soft Amethyst with the occasional textured sterling beads and Swarovski crystal in an eggplant color. The necklace length is 23" and it closes at the neck with a sterling toggle.

*Prehnite is a stone of unconditional love, and its color and unusual touch generate serenity and tranquility. This is the crystal that heals the healer. Prehnite teaches how to be in harmony with nature and allows one to always be prepared. It is also believed to enhance one’s protective field and is known as a stone for “dreaming and remembering”.

*Amethyst is the most highly prized variety of Quartz and is the official birthstone for February. This stone is said to protect the wearer from drunkenness, and for this reason in ancient days, wine goblets were often carved from it. Western mystics say the stone helps instill the highest ideals and urges one to do what is right. They also claim Amethyst cures impatience, alleviates feelings of victimization, balances high energy, eliminates chaos and helps keep one grounded.
