Named after the mighty Amazon river that flows through South America, amazonite is a kind of feldspar mineral much like iridescent moonstone and labradorite, that has been tinted blue and green by the presence of lead and water. Opaque in shades that vary from spearmint turquoise to pale greens with asymmetrical white daubs, amazonite is often cut en cabochon into rounded beads flaunting smooth veneers. Thought once to be given as gifts by beautiful and powerful Amazonian women, unique amazonite was aptly named ‘Amazon stone’ and the ‘stone of courage’ by ancients. Amazonite shows it is a stone representing natural forces to be both enamoured and reckoned with.
