Amazonite is a variety of Microcline, also referred to as an alkali feldspar mineral. This crystal forms in small prismatic crystals, or large masses. The colors of Amazonite range from a deep blue, to Turquoise, to blue-green. The stone was first reported back in 1847 by A. Breithaupt and it’s name derives from the Amazon River in Brazil, which host an abundance of Amazonite. Although it was reported in 1847, Amazonite is believed to have been used for at least 4,000 years. Ancient civilizations such as the Egypt, India, and Mesopotamia used this stone, and even a special scarab ring was found in King Tutankhamen’s burial chamber. Due to it’s forming in masses, many past civilizations used Amazonite as armor, talismans, amulets, trinkets, and writing slabs.
