Note: There I'd a slight surface irregularity on the back of this stone.
Amazonite is a K-spar feldspar, meaning it's full of potassium. Named after the the Amazon River, which shares its color (though it is disputed whether or not Amazonite has ever been found in that area), scientists are at odds over what actually causes these beautiful teal hues.
Another interesting fact is that Amazonite, once revered by ancient cultures, all but disappeared from the art and jewelry world until relatively recently.
Quite a mysterious stone, no?
