Amethyst is so pretty.  I tend to always like a red stone – garnet, ruby – but every time I see the purple of amethyst I remember how much I love it. Especially a rough cut.  So I love this amethyst slice pendant I got from Classic Elements.

Look at all the gorgeous colors in there – purple, white, blue, grey!  I wanted to highlight not only the beautiful purple tips, but the gorgeous druzy-ish white crackle in the middle.  I paired it with some moonstone cubes and semi-rough amethyst nuggets.  As soon as I got the nuggets (from Allegory Gallery‘s recent gemstone haul) I knew they would be great with the pendant. I separated each bead with silver delicas and used a silver snap clasp.  I love this beautiful necklace and will enjoy wearing it often.
