◊ Amazonite is a green variety of microcline feldspar which gets its color from water and lead in the feldspar. It's a mineral of limited occurrence.

◊ Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, obtaining its color from copper. Through history, it was used as a mineral pigment in green paints up until the 1800s. There is archaeological evidence that indicates that the mineral was mined and smelted to obtain copper in Israel for over 3,000 years. Since then, malachite has been used not only as a gemstone, but as an ornamental stone as well.

◊ Due to the aberrant nature of minerals, each gem/mineral is unique.
