Wave upon wave of calming blue cascades in this jewel known as "The Amazon". If you close your eyes you can remember gazing into the blue sky as a child when you found 'pictures' within the clouds or a trip to the beach where the water was so blue you could see the bottom.
Our stretch bracelet features 8mm Amazonite beads.
Amazonite is also known as the Amazon Stone. Amazonite is a light green to light bluish-green color gemstone, with a soft and attractive pastel color. Amazonite's appearance is very distinctive with its grid-like, mottled, green and white pattern. Amazonite was named after South America's Amazon River, which flows through Brazil. There is a debate as to when and where it was found because mineralogists claim no green deposits of feldspar exist in Brazil’s Amazon. Because of this finding, the stones were later assumed to be nephrite jade.
