Amethyst is a quartz crystal, its color is attributed to trace amounts of oxidized iron. Amethyst is said to have gentle healing and protective energies, it can help one let go of harmful habits and behaviors while encouraging better choices. I have always felt that amethyst has a grandmotherly sort of presence. For me they feel soothing and fortifying, a firm but gentle touch with much love behind it.
I carved two linoleum plates for this print, one for the purple stone color - one for the black contour lines, and printed them on sturdy tan card stock. It's quite small, measuring 2 ¼" x 2¼", which made carving the contour line work a delightful challenge! It is signed and dated on the back.
This print is also available as part of a trio:
And its other quartz pals are available individually:
