Amazonite Jewellery - shoplivepages::jquery();?>
Amazonite, also known as Amazon Stone, is a light green to light bluish-green coloured gemstone, and usually exhibits a very mottled and irregular colour distribution. Stones with evenly distributed and saturated colours are the most desirable, and it is not usually treated or enhanced in any way.
The word Amazonite comes from the Amazon River where green stones were found many years ago but now not believed to be Amazonite. There are only a few places in the world where it is found: mainly Russia, although more recently in the USA.
Although rare, it is still considered to be an affordable gemstone.
