Amazonite is actually called Microcline and is a Potassium, Aluminium Silicate and belongs to the Feldspar Group of Minerals.
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. 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.
Amazonite crystal therapies are primarily associated with filtering out stresses, healing traumas, and soothing energies in the home and workplace. Its spiritual power is personal truth and communicating that truth to others.
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.
