Sensational Amazonite cabochon. Designer cut and faceted.

Amazonite has zoomed up in price recently as jewellers and collectors are now truly appreciating it’s natural beauty - it is untreated and organic.

Amazonite gemstone information: The stunning gem Amazonite is a feldspar gemstone. These are divided into potassium feldspars and the plagioclases. Amazonite, moonstone and orthoclase are all potassium feldspars (alkali). They have a hardness of 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale, and a vitreous lustre. Amazonite is a gemstone variety of green microcline. It is named after the Amazon River in Brazil, though no deposits have been found in that location. It exposes its beauty best in daylight, more precisely just after Dawn and before sunset, when the light is warm and soft. Turn the gem to different angles and you will see the glassy Schiller Amazonite healing properties: Amazonite is said to calm one’s emotions and soothe nerves, and to enhance creativity and the ability to express oneself. The deeper the colour of the amazonite, the more intense the effect is said to be. Perhaps the strongest recommendation for its metaphysical power is that Amazonite is said to make your married life happier. Romantics claim that the beautiful green of the Amazon jungle is reflected in the stone that bears its name. A Brazilian legend tells that the Amazons, the legendary female warriors, gave green stones to the men who visited them. This was believed to be Amazonite, but was probably nephrite (jade).
