Amblygonite is sometimes referred to as The Prophets Stone and is a common gem that
includes other minerals like aluminum, lithium and fluoride. Amblygonite can be found in
the same mines where gemstones like lepidolite, apatite, and tourmaline are found.
Amblygonite as a stone is found mostly in pastel shades of pink, yellow, white, lilac and
green. You could also find some which are totally translucent in nature.
The gemstone was discovered in 1800s in the United Kingdom and was named Amblygonite, which meant blunt in Greek. Although, it was originally found in United Kingdom, there are other places like Australia, Brazil, Germany, Norway, France, Spain and the United States that could bring out these precious gems.
How Amblygonite can be used in Jewelry?These gemstones are relatively soft and weigh only 5 in hardness on the Mohs scale. Hence, this means that the gem is very soft and is subjected to easy damage when used as a regular jewelry. These gems are very rarely seen on bracelets or rings because these kinds of jewelries undergo a lot of wear and tear. Hence, they are more popular within earrings, pendants, necklaces and brooches.
How to take care for Amblygonite?Just because these gems are really delicate in nature they should be handled very carefully. While cleaning, it is recommended that they are not dipped into harsh chemicals or into technology driven machines. Harsh chemicals can damage them and machines might even cause a danger of breaking them.
If you have brought home some loose Amblygonite, it is recommended that you store them in separate boxes to ensure its safety. Wrap them in velvet cloth, or in soft cotton to help them stay clean yet protected.
