About this Stone:
The legends say that some Scythian women rubbed one of their breasts with the powder made of green stone that delayed the breast's growth. Perhaps, since those times the legends about one-breasted Amazons arise. The decorations of amazonite are frequently found during excavations of Scythian barrows in the places where, according to Herodot, Amazons lived. The ancient Greek legends assert that waistband of Amazons' leader named Ippolita was made out of green stones. Perhaps these were namely Amazons. In any case, according to the evidence of ancient historians, the stone of Amazons' was mined in Rifeyskie Mountains. This is the place where amazonite really exists. Besides, the legends about one-breasted Amazons could be real. According to modern medical data the powder of Amazonite is able to delay the growth of cells.
The name of the stone introduced some kind of confusion. The historians assert that in 1783 R.B. Rome de Lil called several green pebbles brought from the basin of Amazon River as Amazon stones. Later, in 1847 A. Breitgaut offered for the Amazon stone more laconic name - amazonite. It is known both as Colorado and as Amazon jade, although amazonite as we understand it today is not found in the basin of Amazon River.
The deposits of the stone exist even in the Cole peninsula, in Middle Asia, Ukraine, Brazil, Egypt, India, Canada, Mongol, Norway, USA and in South Africa.

A form of microline, this semi-opaque blue-green variety is named after the Amazon River. Amazonite gets it's greenish color from the presence of copper.
