This kilt pin from our Bee Jane series is a beautiful way to show your love of all things Jane Austen and Regency on your jacket, purse, hat or ball gown! This pale green mineral rock is believed to date back as far as the 10th century BC. Amazonite is also known as the "Amazon stone," because it was thought to have been discovered at the Amazon River Basin in Brazil. However, there are actually no deposits found there and instead amazonite is present in other parts of Brazil, Colorado and Virginia in the United States, Australia and Madagascar. Amazonite stone is also referred to as "Colorado jade" or "Pikes Peak jade" because of its resemblance to jade. Amazonite is usually pale green, but can sometimes be blue-green, turquoise or yellow-green and can also have white streaks. Similar to jade, amazonite is associated with money, luck and overall success. It's known as the "gambler's stone," encouraging good luck and fortune. A scarab ring and a number of other objects carved from green amazonite were found with the treasures of Tutankhamen.
Since Amazonite is a natural stone, each pin is unique and colors may vary.
