Amethyst-The Royal Healer?

As jewelers, we see diamonds and gemstones as wearable pieces of art, as stones that our clients use to decorate themselves and perfect their style. We also take a particular interest in learning about the other properties and uses of our favorite gems. Tobin Jewelers is always curious as to why our clients choose to purchase the stones that they do. Whether it be simply because they love the way it shines, or because they believe in the greater powers a stone or mineral is known for, knowing which gems you love and why helps us to better serve you at both our Mequon and New Berlin area stores. Check out some of the unique properties of Amethyst, a stone we often get requests for in our Milwaukee area stores. Royal in appearance and valued as a powerful healer, amethyst is making a reputation for itself as homeopathic healing is becoming more popular worldwide.
