Amazonite is sometimes called "Amazon stone" although it doesn't come from the Amazon. The name is an homage to the beautiful colors of the Amazon River. The reason for the gemstone's colorization is still much of a mystery. This mineral is found in very limited areas throughout the world - the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in the US, the Southern Urals of Russia, as well as in Madagascar and Brazil. You'll surely enjoy and treasure this beautiful gemstone and Tibetan silver necklace/bracelet with its mysterious, earthy origins.
