Amazonite is a green coloured-gem that is also a member of the feldspar group of minerals rich in potassium. It’s named after the amazon river and is incorrectly called ‘Amazon Jade’. Amazonite is a Blue-Green coloured gem.
This mineral has been used in jewellery for at least 2000 years, with some genuinely stunning specimens being found from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia where it was used to design items such as amulets for royalty.
It is believed to be great in opening up the Heart and Solar Plexus chakras.
