Brazilian Amazonite is an opaque blue-green to light green stone, often occurring with inclusions of white, yellow or gray and occasionally translucent milky white. It is named for the Amazon River in Brazil, where the stones are thought to have been originally found, however they are not currently sourced from that particular region. Amazonite has a long and illustrious history dating back to Mesopotamia.
