"I'll tell you how the sun rose, a ribbon at a time. The steeples swam in amethyst, The news like squirrels ran. The hills untied their bonnets, The bobolinks begun. Then I said softly to myself, "That must have been the sun!" Emily Dickinson. Emily Dickson captures the essence of amethyst, as it's a powerfully beautiful gemstone and one of my favorites to work with. There's something so pure and mesmerizing about amethyst and it contrasts so gorgeously with pearls. Whether you wear it in spring or summer, it helps clear up negativity and puts the past (winter) behind you.
