Amazonite

I’ve started working again. That couldn’t happen without some help. I’m grateful. I dedicate my new collection,( probably I call it “Chicago collection”), to all these people around me, right now.

AMAZONITE

Amazonite, sometimes called “Amazon stone”, is a green variety of microcline feldspar.

The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area.

For many years, the source of amazonite’s color was a mystery. Naturally, many people assumed the color was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colors. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the feldspar.

Crystal System – triklin
Color – green to blue – green
Origin – Russia, Austria, USA, Canada, Brazil, Madagascar, India.

The amazonite is thought to soothe the nervous system, calm the emotions, regulate the body’s calcium levels, and also help to control muscle spasms. It is said that the darker the amazonite, the more powerful its metaphysical properties are.
