Amazonite is a member of the Feldspar mineral family. It is usually found in pegmatites, veins and other structures that contain cavities. Its structure is rich with potassium and aluminum, but the unique and prominent color is caused by trace amounts of lead. It can also contain streaks of Quartz and other Feldspar minerals which give it a visible speckled effect. It can often grow alongside other minerals such as smoky quartz and lepidolite.
Amazonite is a silicate mineral. The Mohs score of this crystal is 6- 6.5 which still makes it susceptible to scratches by other objects. It has an uneven and splintery fracture point when the mineral is damaged.
Amazonite’s name was inspired by the Amazon River because there were many green stones found there. However, it was never confirmed that those were Amazonite and no other occurrences of it were found near the river.
Amazonite has multiple small deposits all around the globe with some of them being in Brazil, Madagascar, United States, Canada, China, Norway, Sweden, Ethiopia, Namibia and others.
Amazonite can be your perfect companion if you struggle with anxious thinking. While soothing your mind it will eliminate any self- neglect so that you can put yourself first and boost your confidence. It’s also a wonderful healing stone to use if you’re facing past trauma because it’s closely connected to the Heart Chakra. That’s why working with this crystal will help you let go of trust issues and fears regarding being vulnerable. Another chakra that is associated with this stone is the Throat Chakra that would only encourage you to communicate clearly and set healthy boundaries.
Amazonite can be used in a couple of different ways. The most popular one is by wearing it as jewelry which will help you absorb those calming energies more. You can also choose to place these crystals in your home as beautiful turquoise décor and a way to bring more harmony within your space. Feng Shui maps suggest that you should put it near your bed if you struggle with falling asleep. It will also encourage you to become more assertive during business meetings if you utilize it in your office. Another powerful way to stimulate healing is by using Amazonite in meditation or as a tumbled pocket stone. You can also gift it to all the Pisces and Aries people in your life as it will fit them perfectly!
