Collection: Amazonite

Also known as the Amazon Stone, is a green variety of microcline feldspar. It's named after the Amazon River in Brazil, although surprisingly, no deposits of this stone have been found there. Its rich color comes from its copper content.

Historically, Amazonite has been used for decorative purposes and jewelry making for over two millennia. It was a significant element in the ornamentation of the pre-Columbian era in Central and South America. In ancient Egypt, it was used in jewelry and also carved into amulets, and a famous amazonite scarab ring was found among Tutankhamun's treasures.

The benefits of Amazonite are largely tied to spiritual and emotional healing. It is often associated with filtering out stress, healing traumas, and soothing energies in the home and workplace. Its energy is understood to encourage truth, courage, and self-discovery. As with any gemstone, the physical benefits of owning and wearing Amazonite jewelry include its lasting beauty and durability.
