Rose Quartz and Amethyst

This is a classic combination in the smie precious gemstone world... and one that I adore. What girl doesn't love the look of pink and purple together? Amethyst and Rose quartz are also said to have special properties all their own.

Amethyst is a beautiful purple colored variety of quartz. Many used to believe that carrying an amethyst stone cured drunkenness. It was also believed to promote a clear mind and increase intelligence. It was also carried as a stone of protection.

Rose Quartz is a heart stone. It is said to heal emotional maladies and promote healing. Its also said to promote inner peace and promote forgiveness.

When the two are combined, as they are in the pieces pictured from my studio, they are said to bring love to its wearer and keep it near. What a lovely thought!
