Amazonite is a beautiful green and blue stone with light white striations. The green color results from copper infusing with crystals while it is formed. This microcline feldspar can be found in the United States, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Russia, Australia, Namibia, Madagascar, and China. We transformed some beautiful rough from China into our 8 inch gemstone line. Amazonite has been known to instill a sense of power, courage and self-worth. It can help one access their creative expression and be inspired by truth, honor, sincerity, and self-love. For these reasons it is often referred to as "hope stone."
