The amazonite crystal, also known as the Amazon stone, Colorado jade or Pikes Peak jade, has been treasured for hundreds of years, going back to the Egyptian era, where they used this very stone to produce some beautiful jewelry such as bracelets and necklaces. They even carved texts into the stone.
For centuries, this stone has always been valued for its beauty as well as its metaphysical properties. This pale green stone was thought to be discovered in the Amazon River, located in Brazil; however, as time progressed, no one ever found deposits. Instead, most of the amazonite you find today comes from Brazil, Madagascar and parts of the United States, such as Colorado. History notes amazonite being used by ancient Amazon tribes in Brazil when they were thought to cure sicknesses and wounds from battle. Legends has it that these green stones were given to others as a token of gratitude and as a way to bring someone luck. That tradition still seems to stand as of today.
Not to be confused with jade, amazonite is thought to be a very powerful stone with a rich history, as you can see.
What are the amazonite properties?
Amazonite is a semi-opaque stone that’s usually a pale blue-green variety of microcline feldspar, which makes up about 60% of the Earth’s crust. Aside from the mostly green color, you can sometimes find it in a yellow-green, white, gray or turquoise-like color, sometimes with white streaks that resemble that of a milky substance. It is the presence of iron and lead that will determine the color. If the crystal doesn’t have the milky-like white substance within, then you may see streaks, which can be green or blue in color, ranging from a light to a darker tone.
Amazonite mostly comes from igneous rock, but it can be found in metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, too. It will form in the igneous rocks found in the deep seas.
Even though it’s named after the Amazon River due to its rich hues, you will not find it near this source. As mentioned, no deposits have ever been noted here.
