Location & Composition of the Crystal
Amazonite, the Stone of Courage, Stone of Success and Abundance and Stone of Truth, is also known as Amazon Jade or Amazon Stone. It is reported to have been named after the Amazon River of South America even though it is not found there and is probably a reference to the green colour of the tropical rainforest or because it was said to have been used on the shields of the Bronze Age Amazonian soldiers.
It is a commonly found crystal in America (Colorado and Virginia), Brazil, Canada, India, Madagascar, Namibia and Russia. It consists of Potassium Aluminium Silicate and Copper and is of the silicates class of crystals. It is opaque in appearance and is a turquoise, green blue colour often found with white marbling throughout it.
General Information & Legends
Amazonite can attract focus, good luck, joy and happiness. It can block electromagnetic pollution emitted from computers, microwaves, televisions and mobile phones and also block geopathic stress. It aligns the physical and subtle bodies whilst assisting to balance the yin and yang (male and female) energies and is said to aid a peaceful transition when it is time to leave this life. It can help you to connect and communicate with Fairies and Nature Spirits.
The Egyptians carved amulets out of Amazonite which they believed would symbolise good luck and fertility. In their Book of the Dead it states that The Judgment of Osiris was carved on tablets of Amazonite. Amazonite items such as beads, jewellery and a scarab ring set in silver were found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. It is said to have adorned the shields of the Amazonians and this may be how it received its name.
Connections: Goddesses & Angels
Amazonite honours the Goddess, Tiamat, the Sumero Babylonian Mother, and Khaos, the Greek Goddess who is the personification of the primordial waters from which all life was formed. She is often depicted as either a serpent or a dragon. It also honours Estsanatiehi, the Navajo Fertility Goddess, and Whope, the Lakota Sioux Goddess. The Assyrians associated this crystal with the god Belus.
There are no particular Angels associated with Amazonite. However, Sandalphon, the Angel of Glory, is associated with the colour turquoise and may thus be called in when using Amazonite to connect with the Angelic realm.
Amazonite is primarily associated with the Heart Chakra (Anahata), relating to love and compassion. Its secondary chakras are the Throat Chakra (Vishuddha), relating to communication, and is from where you speak your truth, the Third Eye (Ajna), relating to insight, intuition, awareness and guidance and the Thymus or Higher Heart Chakra (situated between the Throat and Heart Chakras), relating to awakening higher consciousness, living your personal truth and doing so with passion and conviction. It can be used to heal and bring about vibrational balance in all four of these chakras.
Healing: Physical, Emotional & Spiritual
Physically - Amazonite is said to help with illnesses and symptoms relating to alcoholism, balance, breast issues, calcium deficiency, chemotherapy, dental decay, gout, heart, liver disorders, lungs, menstrual cramps, mental clarity, metabolism regulation, muscle pain, nervous system regeneration, osteoarthritis and rheumatic pain, osteoporosis, radiation, reflexology, sinuses, spine (upper), throat, thyroid balance, yin-yang energy. It is also supposed to aid the absorption of nutrients, minerals and vitamins. When a polished Amazonite crystal is rubbed on an affected area it is thought to clear acne, heal blisters, soothe rashes and prevent infection.
Emotionally - Amazonite is said to assist with aggravation, anger release, clarity, communication, compassion, emotional balance, fear, grief, joy, love, negativity release, self-confidence and self-worth, soothing, trauma, verbal expression and worry. It creates a balance between the mind, body and soul by synchronising the physical and spiritual bodies creating a calming effect.

Important to Know
WARNING: Amazonite is sensitive to pressure and can easily crack or chip, especially if dropped.
As with all crystals you use regularly, don’t forget to cleanse and recharge it at least once a month.
For crystal healers who use crystals in their work, they should be cleansed after each client to remove any negative energy prior to being used on someone else.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Although the powers of crystals and stones are well documented and have been proven to help bring positivity into people's lives, they are never a substitute for medical advice.
