Amethyst Cluster with Stand
This is a very pretty little amethyst cluster from Africa. The color is a bit deeper than it shows in the photographs. It's a nice piece to sit on your desk while working to enjoy it's calm and soothing influence, or as the centerpiece for a grid or displayed on a shelf. It will come out of the stand if you are careful, but I would not remove it too many times or metal fatigue may be a problem. The stand wobbles just a little tiny bit if you touch it, not really a concern but just sayin'. I do not charge any extra to put these in stands or wire wrap them, I just do it because I think they look cute standing up and that they deserve to be displayed nicely. So if I have time I wrap a few. And I really enjoy doing it. And best of all, if you like the stone but don't like my little stand you can take it out no harm done! But I think they're adorable.
Amethyst is a very spiritual stone. It resonates with the crown chakra, and is said to be very helpful in breaking addictions. It has a particular history of use in overcoming alcoholism, which makes sense when you think about it. Alcohol is referred to as spirits, and the relaxing effect of alcohol can be seen as a substitute for spiritual peace. Amethyst opens and supports the crown chakra, allowing true peace to enter.
This cluster measures roughly 2.5 x 1.25 x 1.5 inches. The legs add another .75 of an inch, so it is about 2.5 inches tall overall. Weighs 114g with stand.
