№ 086 Ancient Amazonite

| /

This pair of earrings features a set of ancient amazonite beads that slide freely over a sterling silver ring with Hilltribe Thai silver on either side.  Finding a pair of ancient stones feels so special!

These ancient beads were excavated in sub-Saharan Africa in the ancient city of Djenne-Djeno, located in Mali.  Djenne-Djeno was originally settled around 250 BCE, according to archeologists, and was an oasis with grassy plains, lakes, and rivers allowing for a thriving community of farmers, artisans, and merchants.  By roughly 1,000 CE the water sources and soil had been over used and the population migrated to other areas across Africa.  Ancient beads have a powerful and magical energy.

Amazonite is a soothing stone, which can help in calming the brain and nervous system.  It is believed to balance the masculine and feminine energies and align the physical body with the etheric.  Aiding in dispelling negative energy and alleviating worry and fear, amazonite is a gentle and powerful stone.

Earrings measure 2” from top of earwire.  All findings used are oxidized sterling silver.
