Chrysi necklace is constructed by sterling silver 925. You can choose between amethyst and black onyx 6mm round shaped gemstones.
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.
Onyx comes through the Greek ὄνυξ, meaning “claw” or “fingernail”. The colors of its bands range from black to almost every color.
Every piece may vary a bit, since it is handmade and gemstones are unique.
