It all started this Christmas when I was asked to cage this beautiful chunk of amethyst as a surprise for my friend for his wife. It came off of a larger Geode and was a key element in his marriage proposal!
I think this was a super great gift idea, and I was so psyched to be able to do it for them!
Here is the beginning of the cage. For this one, I am using 3 lengths of hammered round wire.
Now the 13 base solder joints have been finished and its time to close it up!
Here's the finished product! =)
A stone of the mind, amethyst is said to bring calmness and clarity where there is confusion and anxiety. Amethyst crystals are said to bring serenity and calm, to enhance one's ability to assimilate new ideas, and to assist during meditation. This stone is also said to give strength and mental stability, and to provide balance between one's physical, emotional, intellectual states.
