This Amazonite is a saturated brilliant aqua colour. The qualities of the Feldspar family of gemstones gives it a subtle shimmer and patterning that reflects the light and enhances the colour. Set in a substantial Sterling silver size 8 ring, all focus is on the gemstone. A Kingman Turquoise provides an asymmetrical accent above the Amazonite. The result is a calm cool water aqua turquoise water effect, perfect for summer.
Amazonite is quite common here in Eastern Ontario, but the colour is definitely not as intense as this one, which is called "gem quality". The Amazonite here is much paler and often has white striping or patterning throughout. Regardless of quality, Amazonite will have a fish scale type shimmer to it as the light hits it. Amazonite comes in other colours, typically a light almony peach.
