Amazonite - Double Terminated
Swim in Caribbean waters anyone? That's what the color of amazonite reminds us of.
Amazonite is an alkali feldspar mineral, a potassium aluminum silicate with a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its crystal system is triclinic and prismatic. Its color is green or blue-green. Its name derives from the Amazon River in Brazil, where there are important Amazonite deposits. Amazonite is a stone of harmony, both within the self and among people. It is a truth-teller and a peacemaker, assisting one in communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without overemotionalism.
