The Amazonite, as it was called in antiquity, received its beautiful name in honor of the famous Amazon River. According to another version, the name is associated with the Amazons - the legendary beauties and warriors. This is a very plausible hypothesis, since amazonite from ancient times was a symbol of female beauty and independence. In the kingdom of the Amazons, the weaker sex somehow miraculously gained magical power. Fearless virgins won numerous victories over men in the most merciless battles. The American Indians wore the Amazonite Bracelet, and the ancient Egyptians found many amulets, rings and amazonite beads in silver in the tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun.
