The weird and the wonderful
Also known as Amazonstone, this opaque blue-green stone is a member of the feldspar group of minerals.
Considered hard enough to wear every day, some care should always be taken with exposed gemstones in rings.
History in a nutshell
It is thought to be named after the Amazon River in Brazil, although this seems a slightly spurious link as there have never been any deposits found there… and mineralogists believe that there is no green feldspar in that area, although there are deposits elsewhere in Brazil.
Thought to calm one's emotions and nerves, and empower the wearer with courage and the ability to express themselves, it can enhance ones creativity and communications concerning love.
It is known to soothe all chakras, and is particularly rejuvenating to the heart center and the 5th, or Throat Chakra.
Can be used as an alternative December birthstone, amazonite is a stone of self-respect, confidence, grace, and self-assuredness.
