Despite its name amazonite is not found anywhere near the Amazon Basin. It's believed that following its discovery the stone became mixed up with another similar material that had been found in that area. Once rocks and minerals have been classified it's rare for the name to then be changed.
This fine grade amazonite polished stone exhibits a subtle sheen which unfortunately can't be fully appreciated in our photo. Head over to our page on Flickr where you'll find the original image in full size.
An outstanding amazonite stone that certainly won't disappoint. This piece which comes in a protective pouch would make a great gift for someone who loves polished rocks and minerals.
