These crystal gemstones come in blues and greens….as well as different sizes and shapes. My preference is to use stones in jewelry making which are not "Pure" in color but contain many of the earthly elements that are common within the raw slabs of stone and cut for its' beauty for a more natural state.as seen in my photo above. When there is a landscaping of colors and variances of color(s) as an artist I feel they provide a more interesting, beautiful piece of jewelry. My preference also leans towards stones which are the lighter, softer and pretty hues of a light blue rather than the darker blues and green.
The stone is referred to as the Amazon stone, Stone of Hope and is a holy stone in Egypt.
Amazonite contains copper and feldspar.
