Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz. Purple has long been considered a royal color, so it is not surprising that fine amethysts were favored by Egyptian royalty, are featured in the British Crown Jewels, and were a favorite of Catherine the Great. The name Amethyst comes from Greek "Amethustos", meaning “not drunken”. Ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.

The purple vibration has powerful transformative qualities. To use this vibration in changing unwanted situations, imagine yourself surrounded by a vibrating, glowing bubble of violet light emanating from the stone. As you imagine this, know that all that you are upset about or challenged by is currently being transformed and transmuted into something powerful. Imagine the situation changing to what you do want versus how it currently is.

This piece was most likely made during the Edwardian period (1901-1915) when jewelry featured lacy filigree designs that were light and delicate as the clothing at the time, with a sense of refined elegance and luxury. Platinum and diamonds were often used, and amethyst, a favorite stone of King Edward VII’s wife, Alexandra, was often included in jewelry of the era. This amethyst heart brooch was donated to the Smithsonian by Mrs. George M. Morris in 1973.
