What is Amazonite good for?

Amazonite is not only chosen for its aesthetic qualities but also for its purported metaphysical properties. Many believe it to be a stone of truth, communication, and harmony. Wearing Amazonite jewellery is thought to encourage open, honest communication and soothe emotional wounds, providing not only beauty but also a sense of well-being to those who wear it.

Is Amazonite Expensive?

Amazonite is generally priced by the quality. Less inclusions of other stones and a more consistent richer natural colour make a piece rarer than a more pale or irregular looking bead. For this reason there can be a wide range of prices depending on origin, craftsmanship of the bead itself and the rarity of the quality range it falls into.

Generally speaking, amazonite is not an overly expensive stone so most beads will be quite affordable for a special jewellery creation.

The affordability of Amazonite makes it accessible to a wide range of people interested in jewellery-making. Compared to some other gemstones, Amazonite beads are reasonably priced, allowing novice and seasoned crafters to experiment and create without breaking the bank. This accessibility empowers individuals to explore their creativity and express themselves through jewellery design.
