Colors of Amazonite
Amazonite is also known as the Amazon stone. This can vary in color from yellow green to green to blue green. The colors can strongly resemble those of nephrite and jadeite. Amazonite is a green feldspar. Labradorite is a well-known mineral that also belongs to the feldspar family.
Amazonite is named after the Amazon River that flows through Brazil. It was thought that Amazonite had been found here for a long time. But mineralogists have found that there are no green feldspar deposits in the Brazilian Amazon. The found stones appear to be nephrite jade and not amazonite. However, the name has remained. Amazonite is found in Brazil but not on the Amazon River.
Amazonite is also known as the 'The Amazon stone'. There are many old Brazilian legends about legendary female warriors that we know as the "Amazons." According to legend, the "Amazon" green Amazonite would donate stones to the men they visited. Amazonite is said to have a lot of metaphysical and great medicinal effects.
