Lost Branches Amethyst Stalactite Pendant
This is an absolutely incredible piece. A natural Amethyst Stalactite slice, straight from the caves of Brazil where it would have been found as a long pineapple style rod growing directly out from within the Earth - amazing!!
Most raw pieces that I can't set with a solid silver bezel surround ( as in this case as we would lose the main attraction - the stalactite point formation of the Amethyst ), are generally set in a plain claw setting. This for me doesn't really feel complementary to such beautiful stones that I come across, especially here, so I have used a claw setting where the claws have been inspired directly from Mother Nature herself, as branches.
The Amethyst is held safely and securely in place and the branch style claws are greatly fitting to the magnificence of this beautiful mineral.
For the back of the pendant I have followed the natural shape of the Amethyst which not only complements the stone but adds a nice solid and safe back for the stone to sit in.
It has two bail points and looks amazing on any chain or choker.
Amethyst Stalactites generally are coming from Brazil. Unlike more usual Amethyst formations where they are found in their own caverns with a base of the host rock, stalactites form in long rods, they are amazing! The ones sold for jewellery are generally sliced into flat pieces and polished either side. Relatively rare, you may also find Malachite stalactites, Quartz and Rhodocrosite - all of which are magnificent when viewed.

Amethyst is said to be a stone of spirituality and contentment. It is a stone that brings deep peace to our mind, body and spirit. It bestows strength, stability and calm. It is an excellent mineral for those of us who find it hard to switch off our busy minds and for those who wish to go deeper and with greater ease into meditation.
This is a stone that provides a strong shield of protection against all forms of unkind vibrations. It provides us with strong psychic protection against the ill wishes from others and also provides a strong protection against electro-magnetic radiation and smog. ( anti EMF )
The spiritual vibrations of this mineral can open us up to receive our highest guidance, our intuition and our psychic abilities. It is an excellent mineral to enhance our focus, concentration and memory and is a great stone to improve motivation in order to reach our potential and goals in life.
