The HONUA Necklace - named after Mother Earth, is a raw and natural Purple Amethyst Quartz Crystal (also called Chevron Amethyst and Banded Amethyst), handcarved into a symmetrical 6 sided pencil point, gold-plated on a vermeil gold chain (18k gold-plated 925 sterling silver).
Chevron Amethyst is a mixture of Amethyst and Milky Quartz (or clear Quartz). It may also be banded purple and white.
Chain length: 16" (40.6cm), 18" (45.5cm), 24" (61cm) or 30" (76cm). 24" length sits on the chest (so your crystal sits on your heart). Perfect to wear as is or layered. Our 16" and 24" chains are curb chains. Our 18" and 30" chains are ball chains.
Pendant size: due to the natural state of our crystals, every pendant has a unique size, shape and colour. Our pendants range anywhere around 3cm and 4cm long.
Care: while crystals are not fragile, we recommend looking after your crystals and handle with care. Being gold-plated we recommend not wearing while swimming or showering. To get the most of your crystal, we recommend 'charging' and 'cleansing' them in the sun, once per week. All of our crystals are natural, without the use of dyes and gamma-irradiation (heat to induce colour).
All natural crystals possess an amazing energy of natural healing and protection. We recommend having a crystal on you at all times, in your living space, your work space and even under your pillow, while you sleep.
The meaning of Amethyst Quartz/Chevron Amethyst: Chevron Amethyst is a combination of Amethyst and White Quartz, mixed together in a V-striped or banded pattern. Chevron Amethyst combines the strengthening and enhancing qualities of Quartz with the stress relieving qualities of Amethyst. This symbiotic combination of minerals lends itself to a wonderfully spiritual stone, which is great for gently removing the veils that obscure some of the hidden meanings in life.
Chevron Amethyst is one of the best stones to work with the Third-Eye, enhancing both intuition and physical vision on all planes of existence. Use Chevron Amethyst to help remove resistance to change, and to dissipate and repel negativity of all kinds. Chevron Amethyst creates a strong healing field around the user, and as such, is a good choice to cleanse the aura and to enhance the immune system.
Crystal healers work with Chevron Amethyst for its psychic energies and for its ability to clear and strengthen the aura. Chevron Amethyst can amplify energies needed for manifestation and works well in grid work. Chevron Amethyst is also said to deepen the connection to Self.
The majority of our crystal pendants are handcarved by villagers in India. Within these villages, many of the women (and men) can not work; yet they possess amazing skills. There is no factory, they simply work from their homes. We're primarily focusing on empowering these amazing people. Unlike here, every cent makes a huge difference to their lives.
