What Is Amazonite Made Of?

Amazonite Hearts

Amazonite is a tectosilicate mineral and a member of the microcline feldspar group of minerals due to its high composition of potassium.
 
It is thought that Amazonite’s unique blue-green colours are caused by complex chemical processes that are still not fully understood: traces of lead in the mineral have been singled out as a likely cause, however.
