I love this mermaid! She is made of sterling silver and brass, and she holds an amethyst cabochon. I etched her brass tail and soldered it to her hand cut sterling silver body. Amethyst is a natural tranquiliser, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety. Alleviates sadness and grief, and dissolves negativity. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities.
