Sterling Silver Thistle Pendant with inlaid Amethyst.
This lovely Sterling Silver Thistle Pendant is adorned with the perfect choice of a precious stone - an Amethyst - which is the color of the Flower of the Scottish Thistle.
The Thistle became an Emblem of Scotland when long, long ago an invading party decided to sneak up at night, under the cover of darkness, to attack the sleeping Scots. The invaders decided that removing their footwear would enhance their stealth, but the spiky Thistle got the better of them. When one of the intruders stood on the thorny thistle, he yelped out in pain alerting the Scots. Needless to say the Scots won the day (or night really) and the lowly thistle became the Symbol of Scotland. To this day purple is a popular color amoung the Scottish People as it represents the color of the Thistle.
