Amazonite is a rare, green variety of potassium feldspar (microcline) with small amount of rubidium oxide. It comes from pegmatite mines in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The deposits along the Amazon River gave this stone its name.

Amazonite uniqueness: Amazonite can shade from emerald green to blue-green colours. Only a small number of amazonites shine with deep green colours – the majority of amazonites’ colour is less intense.

Special conditions/ treatment: Amazonite is a fragile stone with high cleavage; therefore, it needs careful handling and stable temperatures.

Use: Our rough stones are a beautiful interior adornment – filling up a vase, fountain or a lamp with them creates an original design. In the exterior, they may be a perfect decoration of gardens. They are also suitable for mineralogist collections and exhibitions. Rough minerals may also be further processed, e.g. small crystals are ideal material for pendants.

About the product: Small chips of rough stones have size approx. 7 - 15 mm. The minerals are sold in 1 or 5 kg bags, but we also offer a 25 kg package (cardboard box) for an advantageous price.
