A type of feldspar, the amazonite gemstone is commonly green, but can also be blue-green or brilliant blue. Ironically, although this stunning gemstone is named after the Amazon River, it is doubtful that it has ever been found in the Amazon. In the past, most of the limited quantities of amazonite came from the Ilmen Mountains of Russia, but it can now be found in crystal form in Colorado and Virginia and within pegmatite in Brazil and Madagascar.
