More Information

Amazonite is a variety of microcline feldspar known for its opaque blue-green color, white streaks, and a subtle grid-like pattern. The teal color is the result of lead within the stone. Historically, it was a stone that was treasured by ancient Egyptians, who used it in jewelry and ornaments for its healing purposes. It is known to date back to the 10th century BC. Amazonite is sometimes referred to as “Colorado Jade” or “Pikes Peak Jade” because of its similar green tone to jade.
