The Other "Purple One" - Discover Spirituality & Symphony in Amethyst Necklaces by Azra Mehdi Jewelry

The artist Prince will forever remain the “Purple One.” But did you know that the other “purple one” is the birthstone of February, Amethyst?  One of Prince’s favorite colors was purple, and according to people in the know, because the color purple symbolizes royalty.  Prince undoubtedly represents musical royalty. Read on to discover more about the origins of the Amethyst gemstone as well as its spiritual meaning and influence in history. Just as Prince captivated the world with his 'Purple Rain,' our collection aims to enchant with the gemstone's royal hue and its storied past.

Amethyst Geological Formation and Sources

Just as Prince's music draws from a deep well of influences, so does amethyst draw from the rich tapestry of the Earth's canvas. The story of amethyst begins deep within the Earth, where it forms from the crystallization of silica-rich liquids in rock cavities. This process, occurring over millions of years, gifts us with crystals ranging from the softest lilacs to the deepest purples. Brazil stands as the leading supplier of amethyst, offering gems of exceptional size and clarity. Other notable sources include Uruguay's deep violet stones, Madagascar's high-quality crystals, and Zambia's unique hues, contributing to the global tapestry of amethyst varieties.

Chemical and Physical Properties of Amethyst

At its heart, amethyst is a variety of quartz, composed primarily of silicon dioxide, with iron impurities lending it the iconic purple color. Radiation from the surrounding rock further intensifies this hue. Its durability (a 7 on the Mohs scale) makes it an ideal choice for jewelry, capable of withstanding daily wear while maintaining its enchanting beauty. Each amethyst, carefully selected for our Amethyst Lucky Clover Necklace embodies the gemstone's celebrated durability and vibrant color—traits that have made it a perennial favorite, much like Prince's enduring hits.

Spiritual Meaning of Amethyst

Azra Mehdi Jewelry celebrates amethyst's rich spiritual tapestry in the Pisces Diamond Zodiac Clover Necklace and Aquarius Diamond Zodiac Clover Necklace, reminiscent of the way music legends like Prince have used the color purple to symbolize the depth of human emotion. Our zodiac necklaces don't just accessorize; they resonate with the soulful undertones of amethyst's legacy, each creating a unique connection to the wearer, whether your birthday fall under the Pisces or Aquarius zodiac sign.

Amethyst As a Healing Influence

The spiritual journey of amethyst is as rich as its color. Ancient cultures revered it for its supposed ability to prevent intoxication and clear the mind of negative thoughts. Today, it's cherished as a stone of wisdom and serenity, believed to enhance mental clarity, spiritual insight, and protection. In meditation, amethyst serves as a conduit to deeper understanding and connection, fostering a peaceful state of being. In our Tsavorite Geometric Grace Necklace, the calming presence of amethyst is paired with the vivacious energy of tsavorite, creating a piece that sings with life, creating a symphony of balance and well-being, much like a perfectly composed song.

Timeless Appeal of Amethyst, A Gemstone that Sings in Shades of Purple

Amethyst's enduring appeal lies in its stunning beauty and the tranquility it brings to those who embrace it. Whether adorned as jewelry or used in spiritual practice, this gemstone invites a deeper exploration of the self and the universe. 

Amethyst has also had a profound impact on jewelry design throughout history due to its widespread popularity and rich coloration. Historically, amethyst was often worn by royalty and clergy as a symbol of high status. In modern times, amethyst remains a favorite for designers due to its versatility and affordability. It can be cut into various shapes and sizes, allowing for creative freedom in both high-end and more accessible jewelry pieces. Designers continue to celebrate amethyst for its vibrant color and clarity, using it in everything from statement pieces to subtle accents in more minimalist designs.
