Beautiful blue skies, dispelling dark clouds clearing the way to a lovely day! This is what the colorful black gold Amazonite gemstones bring to my mind. I have created this bracelet with rectangles and squares of black gold Amazonite with its variety of colors, separated by gold-plated lead-free Pewter spacer beads. To the mix, I have added two coins of yellow Fossil Coral, one dangling on a leather cord from the round toggle. Also on the toggles hangs a birds carved from honey Jasper. One of a kind bracelet!
Amazonite is a gemstone that gets its name from the Amazon River in South America, where it was first discovered. The gemstone is found in colors ranging from blue to green. The pastel blue variety is more common, while Russian Amazonite is more teal-green color. Black gold Amazonite is so named because of the white, yellow, cream, gray and black inclusions including specks of golden pyrite. Amazonite is thought to be a soothing and calming gemstone, dispelling negative energy. It is mined in Brazil, Madagascar and Russia.
Fossil Coral or Agatized Coral is ancient Coral, in which the dead Coral has been replaced over time with Agate, which is a fine crystalline quartz material. The 'flower' patterns of the original living coral polyps remain intact and provide wonderful patterns to the Agatized material. They usually come in yellow, white, brown and gray color, but also occasionally in red. In the USA, Agatized Coral can be found in Georgia and Florida.
