Amazonite Pendant - Aqua colored Amazonite necklace is an original wire weave design. This jewelry is made with natural untreated stone and the purest copper wire available. If you are looking for something special this is it - one of a kind piece with a not so very common stone that it is a stand out with it's own silver shimmery flash. I have used a special protectant on the stone's face to prevent loss of shine due to possible abrasion. A care and cleaning sheet will also accompany the necklace. A complimentary satin necklace will also be provided so you can immediately start wearing your pendant. I would expect at some time you will want to find that special necklace that really fits your jewelry to replace the satin one. The Stone: Amazonite is a gem variety of microcline feldspar and is usually polished as a cabochon. It displays a shimmer (shiller) of light which is caused by inclusions. In this stone the Schiller is a silvery reflection from planes in a mineral grain and is similar to what is more commonly known as iridescence. Natural Birthstone: Amazonite which is turquoise in color is one of the natural birthstones of those born as spring begins (20 March to 19 April). Turquoise crystals bring you discovery and balance. Their vibrations help you find yourself and return to equilibrium. Metaphycial Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space.
