Purple Mountain Majesties Necklace

O beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the fruited plain! 
America! America! 
God shed his grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea! 

There are songs that play in our heads. I’m 68 and “America the Beautiful” from 1956, 1957, 1958 is still playing. We sang it in school just after the Pledge of Allegiance. My two favorite lines were and are:
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountains majesties

I knew then what yellow grain fields looked like. At that age I’d never seen a real mountain and every morning I would try to imagine purple mountains majesties. The moment I saw this gem I recognized it as what I had been trying so hard to envision in 1957. The gem is _____ Its color and form is purple mountain mythical. It swirls, has sheen, light and dark. It’s purple. It’s violet. It’s lavender. It’s lilac. At eight years old as we sang the song I was on Route 66, America’s Highway, heading west full sun, amber fields of grain blowing in the afternoon wind, mountains in a purple haze 50 miles away.
If you’ve been looking for purple mountain majesty I’ve found it, it’s here ready to ship and it’s beautiful. Shipping is free anywhere in America.
