Amethyst often used as a protective stone. It is linked to the crown chakra and therefore helpful in purifying the mind and clearing negative thoughts. This includes stress and anxiety, which is why many meditate with amethyst so as to rid themselves of destructive thoughts. Amethyst is also associated with abundance; therefore relieving stress while emanating prosperity. Amethyst facilitates intuition and communication and can therefore be applied to increase overall well-being and effectiveness.
All accent beads are made of Gold filled metal. Gold-filled jewellery is a reasonably priced, quality alternative to solid gold. It is more durable than gold plated jewellery. The gold should not tarnish, however please remove before showering or swimming and avoid spraying perfume or hairspray directly onto the bracelet.
