This handcrafted pendant features three incredible stones; a stunning piece of glowing Amethyst, a gorgeous fuchsia coloured Purpurite, and a beautiful large piece of Merlinite with the more incredible dendrite patterns through the stone. The setting itself has been made with a combination of fine and sterling silver, with a thick hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidized in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord, so that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, this pendant is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 AMETHYST LORE:
Although a semi-precious stone in modern standards, in ancient times Amethyst was considered to be an incredible rare 'gem of fire' worth as much as Diamonds.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February, It also carries the energies of passion, creativity and spirituality. It is a great talisman to wear in the pursuit of the creative arts. It is also considered to be one of the most effective stones for healing people, plants and animals. It calms and soothes, and also brings luck and prosperity.
💎 MERLINITE LORE:
Merlinite is a type of dendritic Opal, characterized by a gorgeous matrix of black and grey over white. It is considered to be a stone of duality; of black and white and of light and dark. It can attract powerful magic and greatly increase luck to its wearer. The stone is extremely rare because it is excavated and produced only in New Mexico, where there is only one mine for Dendritic Opal.
Merlinite is also thought to increase the connection to other worlds, to strengthen psychic abilities and aid in making contact with spiritual energies. It can also boost creativity.
Purpurite gets it's name from the Latin word 'purpura', meaning purple. It is considered by many to be a stone of freedom, allowing us to see the psychological barriers that keep us chained to the secure yet deadening routines of daily life, and giving us the inspiration to break free from them.
As well as this, Purpurite is thought to be a stone confidence and clarity of speech, especially for those in vocations requiring public speaking, as it encourages thoughts to be communicated in a clear and focused way. It is also regarded to be a wonderful stone for physical healing.
