Amazonite is a feldspar mineral which ranges in color from green to blue-green. Its' name is derived from the Amazon River in Brazil where there are substantial Amazonite deposits. It is also found in Colorado, India, Madagascar and Russia.
Amazonite jewelry has been produced for thousands of years. It was used in India, Egypt and pre-Columbian South America and Central America. An Amazonite scarab ring was among Tutankhamen's treasures. How awesome is that!
Amazonite is a water element stone and resonates with the heart and throat chakras. It is considered a stone of truth, communication and harmony. As a stone of personal truth, it allows you to express your heart through effective communication. It can also be helpful for those who are out of touch with their truth. When someone doesn't know what they want or what they have to offer the world, Amazonite can assist them in gaining clarity and point them toward their gifts and abilities.
Amazonite magnifies your intentions and empowers you to manifest your dreams and desires. Because it works through the throat chakra, your intentions must be spoken aloud. Holding an Amazonite while affirming aloud what you wish to create can powerfully enhance your ability to bring it into being. Amazonite teaches us to speak the truth and to make what we speak come true.
On a physical level, it is an excellent stone for arthritis. It can also help balance the thyroid and adrenals, especially when these glands are over-taxed by excessive stress.
I personally love the color of Amazonite and when I wear it I feel calm, I feel I can speak my heart's truth with clarity and I feel I can communicate with others effectively. I hope this stone with its' beautiful energy can help you as well.
