Amazonite

Chakra - Heart

 

Amazonite is known as the 'stone of hope'. Work with it to clear and align your Heart Chakra and it will help you develop a glass-half-full attitude. Even in the darkest moments this stone will help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Amazonite healing properties can really help with a pessimistic outlook. They retrain you to look for the light and expect positive outcomes instead of worse case scenarios.

Amazonite is a very calming stone and has associations with flowing water due to its emerald hue and green specs which are said to echo the colour of the Amazon river. Hold the stone to bring feelings of peace and tranquillity.

Amazonite can also connect to the Throat Chakra and help with communication.

History

 

Amazonite is said to have adorned the shields of Amazonian tribal women warriors from around the 10th century B.C. This beautiful green stone is also linked to the Egyptians. Ancient Egyptians carved Chapter Seven, The Judgment of Osiris, of the Book of the Dead onto slabs of Amazonite and the gold death mask found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb was also adorned with Amazonite. They believed these stones were a symbol of fertility and good luck.

Thought to have originally been found near the Amazon river there are no longer any deposits of Amazonite found in this location. It is found in a number of other locations around the world including Russia, Madagascar, Brazil and the U.S.
