STONE: Amethyst is a variety of quartz that ranges in color from deep purple to pale lavender depending on the presence of manganese and iron. Crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or mauve is called amethyst, a stone traditionally worn to guard against drunkeness and to instill a sober mind. The word amethyst comes from the Greek meaning "without drunkenness."
STONE: Another name for Moonstone is Selenite, after the ancient Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon - an amulet of protection for travelers, and a gift of lovers for passion. Moonstone has been used in Roman jewelry for nearly two thousand years, even longer in the Orient. It was a popular choice for jewelers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness.
STONE: Hypersthene (Mg, Fe)SiO3 comes from the Greek word hyper meaning “above” and stenos meaning “power” and translates to over strength. Hypersthene is found in both igneous and some metamorphic rocks, as well as in both stoney and iron meteorites.
