Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Amethyst Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Amethyst gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Amethyst is a variety of quartz and ranges is color from a light purple to dark deep tones. Jewelry designers have long appreciated its richness of color and the qualities it brings to jewelry. Amethyst should be kept away from direct sunlight as this can cause some amethysts to lose their color. Amethyst is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, some African countries, Uruguay, U.S.A. and Zambia. While it is said to prevent drunkenness, it is often associated with celibacy and used as a symbol of piety, thus its use in churches during the Middle Ages. Da Vinci's idea that Amethyst could help to quicken intelligence and ward off evil thoughts is aligned with Western thought that it can instill high ideals. Some say Amethyst can cure impatience and eliminate chaos. "Green" Amethyst when naturally occurring is called prasiolite. The "green" amethyst we carry is usually heat treated purple amethyst and will be disclosed as such in the listing. there truly is no such thing as green amethyst since amethyst means, by definition purple quartz. because of this we call all of our heated green amethyst "Greened" Amethyst.
