Amazonite ladies pendant featuring a wonderfully distinctive and highly polished cabochon mounted in fine sterling silver. Amazonite which is also known as Amazon Stone takes its name from the Amazon river in Brazil yet ironically it's not found anywhere near there. This blue green variety of the mineral microcline is part of the feldspar group of minerals which includes stones such as labradorite, sunstone and moonstone to name just a few.
An eye-catching stone that's relatively easy to identify due to its distinctive colour and markings, it's a popular lapidary material which is often cut en cabochon for use in items of jewellery.
For those with an interest in crystal healing, amazonite is said to be a powerfully protective stone that dissipates negative energy and alleviates worry and fear.
This relatively light-weight amazonite pendant has been crafted hand and would make a great gift for anyone who loves wearing colourful gemstone jewellery.
