The History of Amazonite Stones:
Amazonite has been used by mankind at least as far back as ancient Egypt. Numerous artifacts with the gemstone have been found. Although it has been around for centuries, it popularity didn´t take-off until it was discovered in the Pikes Peaks District of Colorado in the United States. Prior to this discovery, it had mostly been mined in Russia who was doing a steady trade throughout Europe, but the gemstone captured the public imagination in America when samples were unveiled at the Centennial Exhibition in 1876. The impunity and size of the Colorado Amazonite eventually forced Russian dealers out of business.
The Name’s Origin:
Although its name is derived from the Amazon River that flows through South America, no deposits have been found there.
Amazonite scratches easily and will break under heavy blows, so care should be taken when cleaning and handling the stones. You will get more longevity from the preservation of your amazonite gemstone if you store them in a separate box of their own.
Amazonite Around the World:
Amazonite is predominantly mined in Colorado in the US, but also has healthy reserves in Ontario and Quebec in Canada. Although it is found in the Ural Mountains of Russia, the trade in that part of the world is not as widely practiced as it used to be up until the 19th Century. The stone is also mined in Minas Gerais of Brazil which is the closest place to the Amazon where the stone is found, yet not actually on the Amazon.
