Amazonite is a pale to dark green to blue-green feldspar. It is named after the Amazon River, although it is not found there. The most important source of Amazonite is India.
Amazonite is associated with the heart and throat chakras, providing harmony and balance. It aids in expressing one’s own thoughts and emotions without being over emotional. It can help us to see both sides of an issue objectively, bringing peace within.
Amazonite is good for the immune system and can help with cell regeneration following illness or injury. It can help to rectify calcium deficiency and promote healthy teeth and bones. It is good for osteoporosis and arthritis.
Sue Weaver Crystals;
Amazonite is an excellent stone for balancing masculine and feminine energies within the self. It brings calmness in times of stress, but also gently and subtly increases energy, self-confidence and motivation when needed.
It helps to release anger and frustration and aids compassion. This can be really useful when frustration is directed back at oneself, and could lead to self-destructive behaviour, thus freeing the energy that is stuck in self judgement and criticism, so that we can express the beauty of our true being.
My experience of living with Amazonite;
I have found that the Amazonite has helped me to feel balanced and calm. I have slept well with it and it has been a good crystal to meditate with. Before I decided that we would connect with Amazonite, I had been working on balancing my masculine and feminine energies within, to help with menopausal symptoms. Imagine my surprise (not!) that the crystal I have chosen for us to connect with now has been helping me with this. Again, I love how the universe brings exactly what we need at the right time.
