    Amethyst Gemstone Faceted Nugget Beads 10x14mm approx (~30pce Strand) 38cm Strand.

    This is a rustic style cut faceted nugget bead. Also known as “Bishop’s Stone”. Name comes from Greek “a methustos” - not to intoxicate and Ancient Greeks made drinking vessels from Amethyst in the belief it would prevent drunkenness. Ancient Egyptians wore Amethyst as a protective stone and beads of Amethyst have been found in Anglo Saxon graves in England. Believed to be a meditative and calming stone, working in the emotional, spiritual and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience and peace.
