As a gemstone variety of microcline, a feldspar mineral, named after the Amazon river in Brazil, though surprisingly no deposits have been found in that location. The lively green or blue-green color is extremely attractive. Fine quality amazonite can be mistaken for precious jade. Amazonite does not undergo any kind of treatment. Amazonite is gaining popularity but is still an affordable fine gem for its carat weight.
Amazonite is said to calm one's emotions and soothe nerves, and to enhance creativity and the ability to express oneself. Perhaps the strongest recommendation for its metaphysical power is that Amazonite is said to makes your married life happier.
As Always never disappointed in any gemstone I purchase from this site. I have never had a problem. Thank-You Gemselect for offering such a comprehensive variety . I will continue to order from this site.
Gem select is the most trustworthy web site for gems. What I see in the picture is exactly what I get. Size is indicated by carat weight, and not the picture size, as they are trying to give an up close view of the gem I am hoping to buy. It was so easy to find the stones I was looking for at a price I could afford.
