Large amazonite ring sterling silver, custom size ring. Unisex ring, for him or for her.
A 45×12 mm large stone, a green amazonite originating from the Urals mountains in Russia.
Amazonite varies in color from pale blue and green to deep turquoise. The Russian amazonite has a nice pattern and very deep green color (the Brazilian is more pale blueish)
The raw amazonite has been set in sterling silver and fastened with tab prongs.
The ring band is 1 mm thick and 4 mm wide. Being solid and massive this amazonite ring would make a perfect cocktail ring.
This is an adjustable ring – can be made in any size between US sizes 6 an 10 (EU 15-20), including quarters (convo me if you need a quarter size). This is the reason the ring is not finished yet. The ring will be left open with an overlap so that it sits tightly and comfortably.

Amazonite is quite a rare mineral. Though it is named after the Amazon river, it was formerly obtained almost exclusively from the Southern Urals, Russia.
Being a Feldspar it is soft and has layers. It ranges in hue from bright green to turquoise, and can be translucent to opaque. It has a vitreous luster and iridescence throughout the stone. When polished amazonite resembles finely cracked or spider-webbed marble. So the small crevices you see on a picture (10 times the real size) are natural to the stone.
Amazonite has been used in jewelry and stone carvings since the time of the early Mesopotamian cultures. Well-known in India, Egypt, Sudan and Mesopotamia, it was a popular amulet stone and was once used as decorative material for building facades. It was carved and cut into tablets for the Egyptian funerary text, Book of the Dead, and an Amazonite scarab ring was found among Tutankhamen’s treasures. It was believed to be the third stone in the breastplate of the Jewish High Priest.
As a powerful talisman of healing and prosperity, Amazonite enhances self-empowerment. It inspires truth, sincerity, honor, self-love, courage, communication, eloquence, integrity, trust, clairvoyance, clarity, prophecy & openness. It can help unlock psychic vision, in analyzing & sorting out information with intuitive wisdom, to manifest & retain Universal Love, to increase faith & foster self-discovery. It carries a soothing energy that cleanses stagnancy & negativity so you can spread your wings & accomplish all you are meant to.
