Amethyst is the official birthstone of February. This Amethyst stone is cut from Amethyst that is layered with milky Quartz, forming striking patterns in the stone. This semiprecious gemstone is usually translucent to opaque with purples that range from light to medium purple.
Amethyst is believed to help motivate you, and to help you reach your dreams and goals.
About Argentium® Sterling Silver
Argentium® – The Finest Silver - is a purer version of Sterling Silver that is also highly tarnish resistant. Standard "Sterling Silver" is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. Thus, you see "925 Sterling Silver".
Argentium® is made with 93.5% silver and 6.5% other metals, including germanium and copper, which gives Argentium® additional beneficial properties for jewelry makers. For my jewelry, the biggest benefit of using Argentium® instead of regular Sterling Silver is that it is much more tarnish resistant.
In addition, Argentium® is responsibly manufactured, ethically sourced, and certified to be made with 100% recycled silver.
