  • What is it: Amazonite is also known as the Amazon Stone. It is a light green to light bluish-green color gemstone, with a soft color that can closely resemble Jade. It is sometimes erroneously referred to as 'Colorado jade' or 'Pikes Peak jade' because of its close resemblance. Amazonite's appearance is very distinctive with its grid-like, blue-green and white pattern. Amazonite can also exhibit a very faint sheen adding to its uniqueness.
  • History: There are many old Brazilian legends about legendary female warriors known as the "Amazons". According to legend, the 'Amazons' would gift Amazonite stones to all of the men that would come to visit them. Amazonite was named after the Amazon River, which flows through Brazil, a country in South America. It was believed that Amazonite was found there long ago, but mineralogists claim that no Amazonite deposits exist in Brazil's Amazon River. As a result, the stones were later assumed to be Jade and not actually Amazonite. Amazonite and other blue-green feldspars do naturally occur in other areas of Brazil, just not in the Amazon River.
  • Metaphysical Properties: It is believed that Amazonite is a great stone for Aquarians, promoting vitality for all those who wear it. Often worn by gamblers, amazonite is said to attract luck and good fortune. Stones with deeper colors are considered more intense; therefore, more effective in healing.

 

  • Spiny Oyster:
  • What is it: The spiny oyster is in the spondylus family of mollusks. They are also known as thorny oysters or spondylids. Despite its name, these mollusks are not actually oysters but are more closely related to scallops. Spiny oysters are edible, and the mollusks are harvested for both their shell and meat.
  • History: Spiny oysters shells were carved and traded for at least 10,000 years. Natives of the now county of Columbia harvested these mollusks as a staple food source.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Spiny Oyster Shells represent hope and courage.
