Amazonite – 4537

The blue in these amazing slabs of Amazonite comes from the potassium feldspar, with quartz and other mafic minerals that are running through it. Which is why its not really like the other materials that are easy to define geologically. We call it a hard Granite, but this is a very loose categorisation. It is quarried in Brazil, the original stone of this type coming from the Amazon river area where the local Amazonians were found to be wearing it as jewellery. Needless to say it is very expensive. And this particular block is a top end block with plenty of blue in it compared to others. As always, its worth asking you kitchen company to quote on.
