Gemstone Lore: Amazonite

Amazonite is a green variety of microcline feldspar mined primarily in Colorado, and also found in small amounts in Brazil, Canada, Italy and Russia. Although its name is derived from the Amazon River, no deposits have been found there. It is said to make the skin better, releases fear and anxiety, and makes your married life happier.
