A green this gorgeous inspires men to tell stories. Stories that are a
little fact, a little fiction and impossibly romantic. Looking at the
color of our Helena Green Amethyst Necklace, I’m reminded of a
tale by the great Jules Verne....
In "The Green Ray," one couple spends their lives desperately
wanting to see what scientists call "The Green Flash," an amazingly
rare phenomenon that can occur without warning just as the
sun dips below the horizon. They stand, high atop a hill, waiting
to see it, waiting to experience a sight that only a handful of people
have ever witnessed. But at the very moment the lightshow begins,
their eyes meet and they ignore everything going on around them.
They miss the green flash. But they find something better—love.
In his story, Verne describes the green ray as "liquid jade," but I
think a better comparison might be the color in our Helena Green
Amethyst and Peridot Ring. You may be more familiar with amethyst
in its common shade of violet, but jewelers around the world
have started to take notice of its vivid, verdantly-colored cousin.
Thanks to Stauer, you won’t have to wait a lifetime to experience
this phenomenal green beauty.
