Amazonite is found worldwide, but large deposits exist in Russia, Myanmar (Burma), India, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Brazil, and the United States (Colorado and Virginia). Amazonite often has white lines or alternating streaks mixed in and can have uneven color distribution. While Amazonite is named after the Amazon River of South America, there are no Amazonite deposits that exist in the region, so presumably this stone is named to its resemblance in color to the green of the tropical rainforest.
Bare copper wire will age to a naturally beautiful antiqued hue. If desired the shiny finish can be maintained.
