.I've always loved the amethyst-& collected them for years.
Just one of the reasons I was struck by the Louis Vuitton dress printed in an amethyst geode pattern.
Soft, ethereal, floating.
Amethyst used in a large stone urn
There is a calm in the amethyst, a soothing quality in the color whether it is polished to silvery haze or dark as midnight.
Celebrated at my house and through the ages- Amethyst.
The lakes are something which you are unprepared for; they lie up so high, exposed to the light, and the forest is diminished to a fine fringe on their edges, with here and there a blue mountain, like amethyst jewels set around some jewel of the first water,--so anterior, so superior, to all the changes that are to take place on their shores, even now civil and refined, and fair as they can ever be. Thoreau
in a cabinet of curiosities, painting by Leroy de Barde.
I love this collection of gems on the tiered table.
Full on this casement shone the wintry moon,
And threw warm gules on Madeleine's fair breast,
As down she knelt for heaven's grace and boon;
Rose-bloom fell on her hands, together prest,
And on her silver cross soft amethyst,
And on her hair a glory like a saint: She seemed a splendid angel, newly drest,
Save wings, for heaven.-John Keats
I often move the stones around the living room in the house.
& have adopted the color in various shades of pale round the house.
It pleases me-
Are you drawn over and over again to a certain stone or color?
