I am a volunteer EMT in my small town of Kent, CT. and I wanted a stone that would give me protection and decrease my stress and anxiety. My research came up with amethyst as the stone I needed so I made a very similar necklace to this for myself. I have been in love with a Mexican Jeweler for many years named Matilde Poulat. Her signature is the use of amethyst and turquoise together. With her work as my inspiration I made this necklace combining turquoise, amethyst, coral, ruby, crystal and hill tribe silver. The pendant is made of amethyst. It is approximately 16 inches with 2 inches of extender chain.
