Amethyst : History and spiritual meaning:
The beautiful purple shining stone Amethyst belongs, as well as the rock crystal or the rose quartz to the group of quartz. Its name comes from the Greek (“amethyein”) and means “not drunk”. It owes this meaning to an old Greek myth: At that time the Greeks believed that Amethyst could “protect” against drunkenness.
Amethyst has a detoxifying and versatile healing effect. According to the esoteric therapy it also helps with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis or fungal infection and even headache such as migraine or stress-related neck and neck tension. Supposedly, it also has a positive impact on connective tissue and hair growth.
It is the birthstone for the zodiac signs: Aries, Pisces, Virgo, Aquarius, Capricorn.
Meet Mae, the producer of this product
One day, on a market in Bangkok, I discovered a small shop that was sparkling with colourful gemstones.
A lovely woman sat on the floor and tinkered with her jewellery. Various small gemstone balls and lots of brightly coloured polyester threads were scattered around them.
She greeted every passing visitor with a beaming smile and invited them to her small tinkering room.
Her pretty little daughter kept her company and draped the finished products on the shelves. And if her mother got stuck with her English skills, the little one took over the conversation with customers like a professional.
We were introduced to all of her magic in jewellery form sitting on the floor.
We have been working with our Thai friend Mae since the beginning of Weltentänzer. Our customers and us just love their beautiful jewellery designs. They are simple and timeless and her hippie macrame jewellery stands out from the others.
Every year we look forward to visit her small shop again.
