Cheat Sheet – Amazonite

The Cheat Sheet blog posts will be a new feature on UYJ. Each post will feature a new stone and brief description. If there are pieces in my portfolio which include these stones, they will be featured as well. 

Let’s learn together!

By far, Amazonite is my favourite stone. I love the colour! Anything with lovely hues of turquoise will definitely catch my eye.

  • It is said that Amazonite is named after the Amazon River. I cannot confirm that traces of Amazonite where found there. Sources are mixed regarding this point.
  • Amazon stone is another name.
  • Amazonite is greenish-blue in colour. Sometimes has white, yellow, brown or grey portions.
  • Said to be calming and encourages confidence.
  • Is found worldwide. However, large deposits are said to exist in Colorado, USA; Myanmar, India and Madagascar.

Below are example of pieces by Uniquely Yours Jewelry using Amazonite stones.

Feature on JMJ

Hi, everyone!

Just a quick note to say that I had submitted a short post to the online magazine ‘Jewelry Making Journal’, and featured one of my memory wire bracelets. I decided to enter the first Amazonite bracelet on memory wire which I did some weeks ago.

That submission was chosen and posted today. The link is shared below !
