Description: Amazonite is found in the remote mountains of southern Morocco near the border with Mauritania. It is a hard semi-precious stone and therefore difficult to mine. For centuries beads of amazonite have been worn in traditional Berber necklaces in Morocco, along with beads of silver, coral and amber. All these materials were highly valued by the Berber, but amazonite was the most valued of all: traditionally each Berber necklace would only contain a few beads of precious amazonite. The most valued antique amazonite beads are of a wonderful deep blue/green colour, and have become both rare and expensive. The amazonite produced in Morocco today is generally of a paler and much less attractive colour. These amazonite beads are therefore unusual in that they have the wonderful deep blue/green of antique amazonite.

Price: The price shown is for one strand as shown in the image.

Total length:  425mm approx.

Diameter of largest bead: 25mm approx.
