These natural Brazilian Amazonite beads have not been treated to enhance color or clarity in any way.

Amazonite is a gemstone that has been used in jewelry and beads for centuries. Its soft blue-green color is thought to be reminiscent of the Amazon River where abundant deposits are located. Amazonite is relatively hard with a Mohs Hardness rating of approximately 6.5, making it ideal for use in beading and other gemstone jewelry. It is also said to have calming and soothing properties, which may explain why it has been so popular over the years.

Today, amazonite can be found in a wide variety of gemstone jewelry, from simple beads to more elaborate pieces. Whether you're looking for a unique piece of jewelry or a way to promote relaxation, amazonite is definitely worth considering.
