Mother-of-Pearl is formed from the iridescent inside of a pearl oyster. It is believed to carry the gentle healing power of the sea, relaxing and soothing the emotions. Symbolising abundance and prosperity in mythology, it has been used for centuries in areas as diverse as musical instruments as well as in fine jewellery.
Ancient legend has it that Amazonite was named by the South American Indians in the 18th century who said it came from a land of women without men and so called it “amazon stone”. Formerly Amazonite was mined almost exclusively in Russia, but Colorado in the USA is now a major source. Amazonite is a member of the feldspar family and owes its greeny-blue colour to copper deposits.
It is believed to encourage self-determination and encourage the wearer to take charge of his or her own life by encouraging clear thinking.
