I bought just a few of these tiny, perfect natural Amethyst crystals when I was in Ajijic. The Amethyst is a very pale but true lavender shade, and is set off well with gold-filled wire. A delicate purplish-brown branch of Cherry Laurel contrasts with both. This is a dainty, graceful wand that deserves to be treated more gently than some of my stouter wands. Definitely oriented towards Princess magicks!
