Trivia and Information

From Rock Garden Deluxe

  • This blue-green gemstone is surprisingly not found near the Amazon River (most is found in Colorado).

According to Wikipedia

  • The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether this even occurs in the Amazon area.
  • Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence.
  • Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmen mountains, 50 miles southwest of Chelyabinsk, Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks.
  • More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's Peak, Colorado
  • Crystals of amazonite can also be found in Crystal Park, El Paso County, Colorado.
  • Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as a gemstone, although it is easily fractured.
  •  Naturally, many people assumed the color was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colors. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the stone.
