GREEN AMETHYST has almost always started as purple amethyst which has been heated to high temperatures by the earth’s core or volcanic activity to create the color change! Both purple and green amethyst are fantastic to guard the wearer against negativity both from inside themselves and from those surrounding them. This stone is also said to bring the wearer good fortune.
ABOUT 14k GOLD FILLED:
*Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold
*Gold plating is the lower level and these items tend to tarnish and can often times turn the skin green. Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal.
*If you can wear gold jewelry without skin sensitivity, you can most likely wear gold filled!
*Many owners find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. If it's necessary, clean gold-filled using mild soap and water. Hot weather and water will not damage the material
*During the mid to late Victorian period, gold filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers.
