Amazonite Ladies Pendant
Amazonite 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 the Amazon basin. This blue green variety of microcline is part of the feldspar group of minerals which also includes labradorite, sunstone or aventurine feldspar and moonstone to name just a few.
An eye-catching stone that's relatively easy to identify due to its distinctive colour and markings, amazonite is popular as a lapidary material and is usually cut as a cabochon.
In the world of crystal healing amazonite is said to be powerfully protective and a stone that dissipates negative energy and alleviates worry and fear.
This relatively light-weight amazonite pendant has been crafted hand by one of a small team of talented artisans.
