Amazonite: Gemstone Legends & Facts


Amazonite Bracelet

I love the blue/green colors of amazonite! This gemstone is said to be named after the Amazon river in Brazil, while other sources claim it is named after the Amazon women warriors.

And believe it or not, Amazonite jewelry was produced as long as Four thousand years ago! It has been found in pre-Columbian and Egyptian artifacts. It has been called the Stone of courage, giving the wearer the opportunity to stand up for what is important to them.

Wear Amazonite to help open up the heart and throat chakras. This gemstone is also said to calm the brain and nervous system.

I absolutely LOVE working with this gemstone. the colors are soothing  and blend well with many other jewelry components. Click on the photo to connect directly to my site and the designs that were created in Amazonite.
