Amazonite is a blue-green variety of microline which is a feldspar. It gets its names from the Amazon River, although no deposits of Amazonite have ever been found in the Amazon. Amazonite jewellery was found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun, and high quality Amazonite is sold under the trade names Colorado Jade and Pikes Peak Jade.
Amazonite helps to soothe trauma and calm the soul, temper aggression and promote harmony and balance. It is also useful to help discover personal truths and integrity whilst facilitating boundary-setting, and promote empathy. Amazonite is also considered a support stone that can help alleviate loneliness and make married life happier, as well as a barrier crystal that is effective for EMF protection and dispelling negative energy. It helps to encourage tidiness and boost creativity. By working with Amazonite, users can find greater peace, clarity, and balance in their lives, as well as greater success and abundance. The crystal is believed to provide a powerful protective shield against negative energies and unfair business practices, while also promoting clear communication and empathic understanding in relationships.
