Amazonite is a gem quality variety of feldspar. Amazonite is made up of silicon, aluminium, potassium and oxygen and has a gentle blue-green color due to the presence of minute impurities of lead. Amazonite is opaque or slightly translucent with a waxy or glassy sheen and can sometimes display a schiller effect, where the sheen is predominant when viewed from a specific angle. The word 'feldspar' originated from the German words, "feld"and "spath", which loosely translates as "rock that contains ore". Amazonite was named after South America's Amazon River, which flows through Brazil. Amazonite is not typically treated or enhanced in any way
