Aimilia earrings are constructed by sterling silver 925. The gemstones are natural amazonites 8mm round shaped and amethysts 13x18mm tear shaped gemstones.
Amazonite is a variety of potassium feldspar and is the mineral class of Microcline and it comes in shades of purple, grey, green, and blue. Most often it is a greenish blue color.
This soulful gemstone has long been used as a talisman of truth and hope. As the gentle energetic flow of its color scheme suggests, it comes from the dense green riverbanks of South America’s rainforests. Amazonite can also be found on the vanilla-scented sands of Madagascar and the icy depths of Russia’s tundra. It’s a stone that is mined in the most extraordinary of places and perhaps this adds to its mystical nature.
Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Greek αμέθυστος amethystos from α-, “not” and μεθύσκω, “intoxicate”, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. High quality amethyst can be found in Siberia, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Uruguay, and the Far East.
Every pair may vary a bit, since it is handmade and gemstones are natural and genuine.
