Amazonite

Along with carnelian, turquoise and lapis lazuli, Amazonite is one of the gemstones most often seen in classic Egyptian jewelry - the stuff you see in museums and documentaries about the ancient pharaohs and their burial chambers.

Amazonite's cool green color did not just look beautiful but signified rebirth for the Pharaohs as they entered the afterlife.

Amazonite Colors

Amazonites are rarely a single color but contain swirls and bands of white, gray, light green, sky blue, deep jade and cloudy moss.

When it was used to decorate the burial chambers and palaces of the pharaohs, Amazonite was not called Amazonite but was usually referred to as neshmet.

This name would not really go over so well as a gemstone these days so, in an early effort at marketing, the name Amazonite was dreamt up to conjure exotic images of thick green tropical jungles with languid turquoise pools.

Amazonite Species

Amazonite is a type of microline mineral which in turn is a type of feldspar and is found in igneous and metamorphic rocks - neither of which are to be seen with a 1000 miles of the Amazon. It may be called Amazonite but there are no known sources of this gemstone in either the jungle or the river.

What are the spiritual benefits of Amazonite?

Amazonite has the nickname 'the Stone of Success and Abundance' for its supposed ability to bring wealth and good luck. One of its best uses in the modern world is as protection against harmful electromagnetic pollution.

Its other virtues include:

  • Represents new life and fertility
  • Calms Anxiety
  • Encourages Communication
  • Balance Yin and Yang

See our detailed article on Amazonite meaning and uses

Amazonite and the Chakras

Amazonite is usually a green or blue gemstone so will be most beneficial to the Throat and the Heart Chakras depending on which is the dominant color.

  • Green Amazonite - Heart Chakra, will encourage relationships and compassion
  • Blue Amazonite - Throat Chakra, will help with communication and public speaking

Amazonite Price

As with most gemstones it is the color that gives Amazonite value. A vivid blue-green or green-blue stone is best and the fewer streaks of gray or white the better although interesting patterns are appreciated.

Carat Weight

Amazonite comes in all sizes from small calibrated gemstones ideal for rings, bracelets and earrings to large stones perfect for pendants and brooches.

Even the largest and most impressive gemstones are very reasonably priced and no matter the size they will rarely fetch more than $2 per carat for even the brightest colors and are usually a lot less.

Treatments

Amazonite is not often treated with heat or irradiation - the results are not worth the time and money. We have seen dyed Amazonite - usually in bead form in bulk - but the bright artificial looking color is quite obvious.

Most Amazonite is just cut and polished into natural gemstones.

Amazonite History

Amazonite has been used by many cultures across the ancient world stretching back to at least 2000 BC, but was not named Amazonite until 1847 when mineralogist, Johann Breithaupt, came up with the name for this greenish microline.

It was especially loved by Ancient Egyptians as they thought it helped in the journey to the afterlife and Ancient Babylonians would carve Amazonite into official seals for important documents.

Where is Amazonite found?

There is evidence of Amazonite mines in the Eastern deserts of Egypt which can be traced back to 2000 BC but these days Amazonite is mostly found in China and Mongolia in East Asia, the Ural Mountains of Russia, the island of Madagascar, and Brazil (though not in the Amazon region!).

The USA has exceptionally fine deep blue and green deposits in Colorado which is often called Pikes Peak Amazonite after its source and to highlight its exceptional quality.

What jewelry is Amazonite suitable for?

Amazonite is rated at 6 - 6.5 on Mohs hardness scale which makes it strong enough for jewelry items such as earrings, pendants and brooches but care should be taken when used for rings and bracelets.

The large sizes and interesting patterns makes this stone particularly good for one-off designs for pendants, brooches and earrings if you are looking for something really unique.

Amazonite is also perfect for jewelry making hobbyists because of the big sizes and affordability.

I make wire wrapped pendants for birthday presents, and always feature a birthstone as the base for the project. GemSelect has a wide variety of shape/size pieces to fit any budget. A detailed description of each individual stone is perfect for those searching for particular stones for their application, and information on stone treatments and the like are phenomenal.
