Amazonite is actually called Microcline and is a Potassium, Aluminium Silicate and belongs to the Feldspar Group of Minerals.
Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence. Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmensky Mountains in 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. It is also found in pegmatite in Madagascar, Canada and in Brazil.
For many years, the source of Amazonite's colour was a mystery. Many people assumed the colour was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colours. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the Feldspar.
