Pearls were used cosmetically by the ancient Egyptians and by the Chinese, who credited the pearl with aphrodisiac virtues. The formation of a pearl is the result of the mollusk’s self-defense mechanism, reacting to a foreign body; example: a grain of sand that managed to penetrate its flesh.

The power to protect against drunkenness is attributed to the amethyst, hence its name, derives from Greek etymological origin “amethystos” meaning “not to be drunk”. A symbol of modesty and inner peace, the amethyst, is known for its power to purify the spirit.
