During the Late Formative period, there developed a great interest and desire for
green stones in general. They were exotic in most areas and would have been sought
in exchange over long distances as it became widespread use in domestic and mortuary
contexts. The dramatic growth in popularity of green stones also occurred at about
the same time in Mesoamerica.
