Amazonite (sometimes called "Amazon stone") is a green variety of feldspar. The name comes from the Amazon River where some green stones previously have been found, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon region.
The presence of Amazonite is limited, and mined almost exclusively in Ilmenbergen, Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been found in Pike's Peak, Colorado, together with smoky quartz, orthoclase and albite in a coarse or granite pegmatite.
Crystals of Amazonite can also be found in Crystal Park, El Paso County. Other locations in the US that provides Amazonite is Morefield Mine in Amelia, Virginia. It also occurs in Madagascar, India, Kenya, Namibia, Russia and Brazil, and Sweden.
For many years the source of the colour was a mystery; It was assumed that it came from copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colours. Later studies indicate that the blue-green colour is a result of small amounts of lead and water.
Amazonite increases the sensitivity and awareness of your thoughts, feelings and actions towards other people. It is a stone for those who want to go their own way and take responsibility for their life, and it supports all kinds of change. Amazonite gives you the courage to break up, and choose the path according to your innermost desire.
