A green tectosilicate mineral, Amazonite is a type of potassium feldspar called microcline. It is named after the Amazon River, where greenish-aqua rocks like Amazonite have been found. It was first described as a distinct mineral only in the 18th century. Green and greenish-blue varieties of potassium feldspars which are predominantly triclinic are designated as amazonite. A 1985 study suggests the blue-green color comes from quantities of lead and water in the feldspar. It is found in granite and occasionally cut and used as a gemstone.
