Did You Know

Did you know during the renaissance amethyst was commonly engraved with a bear and worn as a protective amulet?

  1. News to me too - though I like both bears and amethyst. Some days a protective amulet would be welcome too.

    1. Hmm, you wouldn't need that amulet for your small black bear now would you? Or is that small black panther?:)

  6. Stones are interesting! I used to think their energy was all a bunch of folklore, until my wrist hurt from wearing a rhodonite bracelet. 😲
