At Christmas, we often hear about peace on earth and, it’s because of the first Christmas that we can experience true rest in our hearts. This sense of calm is gorgeously represented in green amethyst jewelry. The apostle Luke described the night that peace came to earth:
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
It’s because of this this gift of peace 2,000 years ago that we can have true peace in our hearts and in our relationships with others. The unique color of green amethyst conveys the nature of this peace—it’s both calming to the heart and invigorating to the soul.
