Dogtooth Amethyst Love AffairPosted by Ali on October 30 at 02:09 pm
I love dogtooth amethyst. Lima Beads first started carrying this stone a couple of months ago, but we were only able to get 2 shapes to start. This week, we’ve added a full line of it and I’m so excited. I must admit, I already took out a few strands for myself
When we initially added it to our shop, it wasn’t as popular as I thought it would be. I think the fact that we only had 2 shapes to offer made it more difficult for all of you to use. I think it’s going to turn into one of our most popular stones. It’s a natural purple stone that isn’t very expensive and that’s not an easy combination to find. It has the same gorgeous purple tones of amethyst that we all love, but also introduces white banding. This white banding is caused by a growth of calcite on the amethyst. This is commonly referred to as “dogtooth calcite” — which is where the name for this stone comes from.
You can check it out on the Dogtooth Amethyst page. For those of you that pay attention to the mystical properties of these stones — they say this one is supposed to help with shopping addiction. We always hear from people that they’re addicted to the Big Green Bead Machine, so maybe dogtooth amethyst can help!
Let me know what you think of this stone, I’m very curious
