Amazonite- Healing Properties, Color, Power & Facts

The semi-opaque and extremely attractive, Amazonite is a sea-blue or sea-green colored variety of Feldspar, which has derived its name from the Amazon River.

Like profound and intense water, Amazonite indicates a captivating shade of sea blue and green, promising to pacify the soul and calms the spirit. The energy of Amazonite is as powerful as the River Amazon on which it is named, and as audacious as the well-known female combatants with whom the amazing stone is connected, yet it reduces aggression, quietens the absurd and irrational things, and tranquil the uneasiness. It provides balance and harmony in the life of the one who wears it.


Amazonite has been used in jewellery making since the times of Mesopotamian civilizations. It has been cut into beads since then and is well-known in Egypt, India, Mesopotamia, and Sudan as a popular amulet and decorative material.

Where Is Amazonite Stone Found?

Amazonite is found and mined in very few locations around the world. For many years, Mount Ilmen in Russia was thought to be the only home of Amazonite, until recent discoveries of various other sources in Australia, USA, Brazil, and Madagascar.

Amazonite is also used in treating brittle nails and hair and to prevent hair loss.

Amazonite is also known for maintaining the wearer hale and hearty in general.

It takes care of the issues with the thyroid and throat gland, nervous system, and blockage of neural nerves.

Moreover, Amazonite has also proved useful in taking care of sexual disarrays, such as impotence, lack of desire, sexual obsession, etc. It is also thought to assist in childbirth.

Emotional Healing : Amazonite is believed to reduce the tendencies of self-neglecting, particularly in women. It increases the self-esteem, and improves the way of communication and makes it more effective.  It also gives power to one to set suitable boundaries, privately in the strength of mind and establish healthy relations with others.

Amazonite is an amazing healer for the emotional body. It calms the mind and takes out the wearer from the state of trauma. It directs anger, pacifies fret and fear, and converts irritability into optimism. It seeks emotional balance and normalizes the aggression in the wearer.

Spiritual Healing : Amazonite holds the energy of truth and honesty. It harmonizes the communication between intuition and intellect. It allows one to find the right path of the life, which is true and wise and spread it in others as well.

Amazonite also makes the wearer powerful enough to manifest desires and dreams by clearly analyzing the wearer’s intentions. Amazonite is believed to work through the throat chakra and hence whatever is wished must be spoken loudly. If one wishes something to be fulfilled, he/she must hold an Amazonite in hands and speak the wish loudly. It can powerfully enhance one’s ability to achieve his/her desires.

Heals and Balances Chakra : Amazonite deeply and stimulates both heart and throat chakra. The heart chakra is meant to set-up our interaction and communication with the external world. It gives us our identity and let us be what we are within the environment. The blockage in heart chakra makes one feel controlled or being controlled in relationships. Amazonite unblocks the heart chakra thereby helping the wearer to understand his own emotions and needs evidently.

On the other hand, the throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a valve which allows energies to circulate from one chakra to the other. If throat chakra is unbalanced it can affect the health of the other chakras as well. An unblocked and clean throat chakra allows the wearer to express his emotions well and lets him speak and communicate his ideas, imaginations, opinion, and emotions to the world without any hesitation. It makes the circulation of energy in the body to flow easily. A blue Amazonite crystal helps in unblocking the throat chakra.

Amazonite Metaphysical Properties

Amazonite or Amazon Stone or Amazon Jade is a green to a sea-green variety of Microcline, which is basically a Feldspar mineral forming in masses, short prismatic crystals or tabular crystals.

Amazonite has a vitreous lustre, which when polished looks a lot like spider-webbed marble or finely cracked marble exhibiting a Schiller effect with a pearly gleam all through the stone. The blue-green color that Amazonite has was once thought to be because of the presence of copper compounds into it. In 1980, scientists discovered that this color effect is due to the presence some amount of lead and water. Amazonite fractures easily and is cut in cabochon for using in jewellery making. It is a soft stone by nature and hence a good care must be taken of it, while wearing or storing. It has an average hardness of 6 to 6.5 on the Moh’s scale.

    Everything was going great till I got to the comment that Amazonite was only for Virgo's???\nSurely if you are intuitively/psychically drawn to a precious stone/crystal, it doesn't matter what star sign you are.\nSincerely \nJane\n(Awaiting my beautiful ring) 😇💛😇
