Amazonite is a green tectosilicate mineral, a variety of potassium feldspar known as microcline. Archaeological finds in Egypt and Mesopotamia have discovered pieces of amazonite. This leads many to believe that it’s been known to humans for nearly two thousand years. Amazonite can be found worldwide, but is not incredibly common. The true origin of its beautiful green coloration is a point of contention amongst many scholars. It is known to contain five times the recommended amount of lead per human consumption.
Metaphysical: Supposedly amazonite is associated with money, luck and overall success. It’s known as the “gambler’s stone,” encouraging good luck and fortune.
