History: Amazonite (KAlSi308) is a form of pale green Microcline, a potash feldspar found in Brazil, U.S.S.R., and U.S. Like all other feldspars, Amazonite's energy works very well when combined with like stones such as topaz and aqua aura. Named for its place of discovery in the Amazon basin, this stone was believed to be jade for centuries. The parallel shadings caused by the presence of lead, give amazonite its intense color. The best crystals are found near Pike's Peak. It was used in jewelry in the India, Mesopotamia and the Sudan. In Egypt, amazonite was made into tablets in parts of the Book of the Dead and found in the tomb of King Tut.

Taken From Wikipedia

Amazonite (sometimes called "Amazon stone") is a green variety of microcline feldspar.

The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area.

Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence. Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmen mountains, 50 miles southwest of Chelyabinsk, Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's Peak, Colorado, where it is found associated with smoky quartz, orthoclase, and albite in a coarse granite or pegmatite. Crystal Park, El Paso County, Colorado is a well-known locality for crystals of amazonite. Some other localities in the United States yield amazonite, and it is also found in pegmatite in Madagascar and in Brazil.

Because of its bright green colour when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as a gemstone, although it is easily fractured.

For many years, the source of amazonite's color was a mystery. Naturally, many people assumed the color was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colors. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the feldspar. (Hoffmeister and Rossman, 1985)
