    Stone Stories: Amazonite
    Amazonite is a type of feldspar, ranging in color from bright green to bluish green. Feldspar minerals actually crystallize from magma! The Amazonite featured in a lot of my jewelry is AAA grade Amazonite from Russia. You have to see its dreamy color!

    Like most gems, Amazonite has a colorful folklore. Said to have been worn or named after the Amazon women warriors during the Bronze Age, Amazonite was also reported to have been used by the Egyptians. Although its' name is derived from the Amazon River, no deposits have been found there!  Amazonite is known to help filter out stresses, and aids in communicating truth to others.
