Amazonite is a vitreous to pearly, translucent to opaque stone that occurs as blocky or tabular crystals. The most desired colours are blue, blue-green to green with white striations, but Amazonite can also occur with brown, white, cream and yellow patterning as part of the crystal.Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence.
Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmensky Mountains in Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's Peak, Colorado, where it is found associated with smoky quartz, orthoclase, and albite in a coarse granite or pegmatite. It is also found in pegmatite in Madagascar, Canada and in Brazil.
For many years, the source of Amazonite's colour was a mystery. Many people assumed the colour was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colours. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the Feldspar.
My style is simple and elegant and it can be worn by both men and women.
I ensure that I only use real stones, therefore, each stone and silver wrap is a unique piece of artwork, no two pieces are alike. They are all unique and handmade by me. It is made with tender, love and care. If you have a stone you want wrapped, I can do that for you. I do customized orders, if you want anything else let me know.
