Amazonite Triple Strand Necklace Set
SN110S Amazonite triple strand blue stone necklace set with silver plated adjustable chain and sterling silver 13 mm trigger clasp. Size 16-19 adjustable with matching earrings created with sterling silver wires. This pale blue stone necklace has stones which can be opaque blue to green to light green stones, often occurring with inclusions of white, yellow or gray and occasionally translucent milky white. It is named for the Amazon River in Brazil, where the stones are thought to have been originally found, however they are not currently sourced from that particular region. Amazonite has a long and illustrious history dating back to Mesopotamia. It was used in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and an Amazonite ring was found among the treasures in King Tutankhamun’s tomb.
