Description
The name amethyst derives from the Greek words meaning "not drunk," for this quartz crystal was believed to keep the wearer sober no matter how much wine he might consume. Prized throughout the ancient world, amethyst was especially popular in Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Amethyst is useful for cleansing the body of impurities, for clearing the mind, and for improving memory. It gives the wearer pleasant dreams, and is reputed to inspire creativity.

The ancient Egyptians believed that aquamarine quickened the intellect and made the wearer bath relaxed and fearless. A variety of the beryl family, the pale blue/green aquamarine has been likened to a thousand leagues of sunlit sea imprisoned in a cup; the Romans esteemed it because its color was that of a calm sea, a metaphor for peace. According to Eastern philosophy, the aquamarine is traditionally a stone of power, one that brings order and balance to the wearer. It is excellent for meditation and is said to have a soothing effect on bath the thymus gland and the heart chakra. Its pale but exquisite color is flattering bath to the wearer and to the eye of the beholder.

Named after the lemon for its rich yellow to orange/brown coloring, citrine is a member of the quartz family. It was frequently used in Hellenistic and Roman times for rings, intaglios and other jewelry. Though its primary source in Antiquity, as now, was Ceylan, deposits are also known in Spain and the Ural Mountains. Metaphysical science values citrine for its transformative energy, which is thought to raise low vibrations to a higher level, making it useful for healing and meditation. Citrine is also considered as a lucky talisman to bring success in all business ventures. In addition to its curative and soothing properties, its warm, glowing color brings pleasure to the senses.
