Amazonite (sometimes called “Amazon stone”) is a green variety of microcline feldspar. The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area. It is a mineral of limited occurrence. Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as an inexpensive gemstone in a similar way to agate, although it is easily fractured.
Agate –is a variety of chalcedony formed from layers of quartz which usually show varicolored bands. It usually occurs as rounded nodules or veins. Often tiny quartz crystals form within the stone and add to the beauty and uniqueness of individual stones. These crystals are called drusy (sometimes misspelled as druzy). There are many colors and variants of agate.
Aventurine – is a form of quartz, it is characterized by its mineral inclusions and its translucency. The inclusions give it a glistening and shimmering effect.
