The base of the bowl is richly used Italian Nero Portorro marble. The ruffle is made of Amazonite stone.
Amazonite is a turquoise-blue mineral, a variety of potassium feldspar with very high hardness and durability. It is characterized by high resistance to stains and scratches. It comes from the dense, green river banks of the rainforests of South America. Amazonite can also be found on the vanilla-scented sands of Madagascar and in the icy depths of the Russian tundra.
Called the stone of hope, this precious metal has long been used as a talisman. Amazonite already appears in Ancient Greece (decorating the shields of the legendary Amazons) and Egypt (in jewelry and the tomb of Tutankhamun).
Amazonite is believed to have healing properties and a positive impact on our well-being. It is especially recommended as a stone of youth and hope. Placed on a table or bedside table, it is supposed to "take away" our worries and improve regeneration.
