Amazonite is a rare, green variety of microcline feldspar. Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as a gemstone. For many years, the source of amazonite's color was a mystery. Naturally, many people assumed the color was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colors. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the feldspar.
