Amazonite is an opaque blue-green variety of microcline feldspar.
It is named after the Amazon River in Brazil where it was first believed to have been discovered thousands of years ago, although geologists are now uncertain of this discovery since there are no known deposits of Amazonite in the Amazon.
This gemstone can be found in other parts of Brazil, Russia, Australia, Madagascar, and even in the US.
Amazonite is believed to promote good physical health, and though to be a good luck stone!
Besides all of it's interesting history, it is a beautiful gemstone. The soft blue in this
