Like the flow of the azure green waters, Amazonite calls in the colours of the divine Goddess herself. Captivating and calming, she soothes even the mighty warrior Goddess. Amazonite tempers aggressive energy while emanating harmony and balance.
Its energy is as powerful as the river for which it is named in the Amazon and as bold as the legendary women warriors with whom it is connected. Yet, it tempers aggression and tames the irrational. It provides harmony and balance.
Amazonite, also called Amazon Jade or Amazon Stone, is a green to blue-green variety of Microcline, a Feldspar mineral that forms in short prismatic, tabular crystals or masses.
Amazonite is truly the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth; Amazonite empowers one to search the inner self and discover your truths and integrity. It encourages us to give freedom to our full expression and creative artistry. Amazonite supports thoughts and feelings to be resilient and to set strong and clear boundaries.
Amazonite soothes the chakras and aligns the physical body to the etheric as a metaphysical healer. It is particularly rejuvenating to the Heart and Throat Chakras, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one’s masculine/feminine energies and many aspects of the personality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accept differing points of view.
Amazonite has been used in jewelry and cut into beads since early Mesopotamian cultures as a potent talisman of healing and prosperity. Well-known in India, Egypt, Sudan, and Mesopotamia, it was a famous amulet stone and was once used as decorative material for building facades. It was carved and cut into tablets for the Egyptian funerary text, Book of the Dead, and an Amazonite scarab ring was found among Tutankhamun’s treasures.
