Location: Santiago, Chile; Material: Amethyst & Silver
Yet another necklace with my birthstone on it! I believe that this (and the necklace I already wrote about, from India) are the only two items I have made out amethyst, as of now (February 2015) anyway. I purchased this pendant-that-is-amethyst-but-really-looks-like-crystal at the same artisan market in the major Chilean city of Santiago as I purchased my copper and lapis lazuli earrings described earlier. To tell you the truth, I forgot all about this necklace until this past week, when I finally found some string to put all of my loose pendants on (as mentioned in another recent entry). I love this, it is so beautiful! I especially love how the piece gets gradually gets darker further down on the pendant.
