Inspired by nature, this necklace features a locally-mined Four Peaks Arizona Amethyst gem, measuring about 7mm across (weighing just about 1.10 carats). The sterling silver setting takes inspiration from our legendary monsoon season, when storm clouds roll into the desert and bring us beautiful rains. The trillion-cut amethyst represents a mountain, and the zig-zag style of the silver is a lightning bolt touching down! This electrifying style is perfect for the nature lover, the desert-dweller, or anyone who loves amethyst.

The Four Peaks mine, located about 46 miles outside of Phoenix, is one of the last remaining truly "old school" mines. To preserve the local wilderness and wildlife, no motor vehicles are allowed onsite. Painstaking care is taken for the land, which is why amethyst rough and supplies for the miners are transported exclusively by helicopter. The miners, too, live on the wild side. They hike up the side of the Matatzal (nicknamed "Four Peaks") mountains and camp for one to two weeks at a time with no electricity or running water. Truly, no other gemstone is as beloved as The Arizona Four Peaks Amethyst™. From the use of hand tools to extract the stone, to the hand-sorting and cleaning by a local company in Scottsdale, the admiration for this gem and the earth that produces it is clear.
This magnificent Arizona gemstone is stunning in quality and intensity of color, with a dark purple hue and bright magenta flash. Sami's is a proud dealer of Arizona Amethyst™, and carries a huge selection of jewelry and loose stones for your collection.
