COTTON CANDY AM ETHYST®
Amethysts are one of the most popular and mystical gemstones with a long history. It can be traced back to 4000 BC., was worn by the ancient Romans as a talisman; written about by Leonardo da Vinci who said the gem had the power to protect against evil thoughts and sharpen intelligence; and to this day, amethysts are featured in the Tibetan rosary as the Buddhists believe the gem enhances the peace and tranquility of meditation.
Amethysts come in a variety of shades and colors, from the deepest royal purple to the softer flavor of Cotton Candy Amethyst®, which is a pink amethyst and comes from two countries and three cities: the Yuriti Mine in Bolivia; the Brozino Mine in Catchete, Brazil; and the Bahia region of Maraba, Brazil.
