amethyst core samples

I'm planning a big Sadie shop update over the February reading break (the 14th to 20th) and thought I'd give you a little sneak peek at some of the items that will be available. These gold dipped amethyst core samples will be among the new crystal pieces that I'm going to post. I also have some new Cave Explorers, which I'll share a day or two before I put them in the shop.

Amethyst is one of my favourite stones, perhaps because I think it was the first stone that I was ever given. My parents gave me an amethyst ring when I "graduated" from preschool. I lost that ring in a brook on my grandmother's farm, but my mom actually miraculously found it the next day in the water! I love how each core sample is really unique and tells a story about different geological conditions that formed the colour bands and crystal structures. These gold-dipped pendants will be in the shop soon!


  1. Wow, these are so beautiful! I collected amethyst as a child -- I feel like they have some magic purple powers!!!

    Looking forward to the shop update! xo

  2. i just finished looking in your shop to see if you'd added anything, then i saw your link on twitter and couldn't wait to see what you'd been working on! i know i'm on a shopping lock down right now, but i've seriously been wanting/needing a cave explorer necklace, and now thanks to this post, one of the amethyst core necklaces! hmmm, i can't decide! i'm definitely checking back once you're on your break and doing some updating!

    i've always really like amethyst, too. i know it's not a super precious stone, but it's just so pretty, and that's all that concerns me!
