My favorite lore of Amazonite is its connection to the Amazonite women who worshipped the Goddess Diana...as it is a stone of courage, bravery and general badassness. Empowering the user with strength when something needs to be said and heard that might be difficult to put into words. This sphere is a lovely piece to work with! The color on this bud is 👌 and even has a real nice flash to it! Since it is a member of feldspar, it has a lovely shimmery chatoyant flash on it! 2.30 inches, hails from Brazil.
