About the stone
Green Amethyst is actually a type of Amethyst that contains certain iron compounds which when heated changes colour from purple to green. This can happen naturally and is known as Prasiolite, but it is very rare. The practice of heat-treating stone is common in the gemmological industry and it does not compromise the value of the resulting coloured stone. It is still a natural gemstone.
Green Amethyst is a highly spiritual stone. It is known to open the mind and bring prosperity by enhancing decision-making abilities, emotions and will power. Because it derives from Amethyst it also shares some of its properties such as preventing drunkenness and addiction and is used to alleviate sleeplessness, migraines and mental problems.
Green Amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone.
Citrine is the horoscope stone for Virgo.
Most Citrine is mined in Brazil but can be found all over the world. The name citrine comes from an old French word "citrin," meaning lemon.
According to Chinese legends, citrine is "The Stone of Success," and it should be given to generous people only. Ancient Chinese emperors wore Citrine as they believed it would increase intellectual capabilities and broaden the mind. Today, citrine is used by modern Chinese students to help them succeed on exams. Many Chinese professors and teachers also use it when lecturing.
Citrine is said to bring wealth and abundance. Its properties are also linked to creativity and is said to enhance mental clarity and activate imagination. It carries the power of the sun and is an exceedingly beneficial stone.
Opal is the birthstone for October.
Australia produces 95% of the worlds opals. It is not known exactly how opal is formed, but many believe it is formed when water from rain seeps down into crevasses in the rock. Once the water evaporates, the silica that is left behind dries out and hardens into precious opal.
The ancient Greeks believed that opals were formed from the tears of joy wept by Zeus when he defeated the titans, and that the opal bestowed prophetic powers.
Most civilizations see opal as a lucky stone. In the Middle Ages, it was considered that it could provide great luck as it carried all the virtues of each gemstone whose colour was represented in the opal. Following the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s ‘Anne of Geierstein’ in 1829, opal acquired a less popular reputation. In Scott’s novel, the Baroness of Arnheim wears an opal talisman with supernatural powers. When a drop of holy water falls on the talisman, the opal turns into a colourless stone and the Baroness dies soon after. Due to the popularity of this novel, people began to associate opals with bad luck and death and within a year of the novel being published, the sale of opals in Europe had dropped by 50%.
Opals have always been associated with love and passion, it is a seductive stone that intensifies emotions and releases inhibitions. It is believed to stimulate originality and creativity. Wearing opal is said to bring loyalty, faithfulness and spontaneity.
