What is Amazonite?
Amazonite is a gemstone from the silicate family of crystals. It gets its name from the Amazon River, the largest river in South America, where it is found on the river banks. It is also commonly found in Russia, the USA, China, and other regions.
It looks like bright green verdigris (...picture the most amazing green ever!) and has been used as a healing crystal for a very long time. Amazonite gets its distinct, bright green color from the concentrations of lead and iron found in feldspar and sometimes also contains white streaks. There are differences in the color of the crystal that show where it came from. Many accounts describe it as resembling turquoise and jade at first glance.
Amazonite is a crystal that has many healing and spiritual uses in addition to its unique look. The combination of different metals, along with its reactive properties, gives amazonite these distinct and varied qualities.
Amazonite is an effective tool to aid with the healing of severe emotional trauma. It offers clarity of thought to the victim, allowing them to realize their trauma rationally and get rid of all the haunted thoughts and memories. Amazonite also reduces the flow of anger and violence by keeping an individual calm and at ease.
Spiritually, amazonite is one of the most impactful crystals you can find. It is the best stone to have around while meditating. It helps achieve a clear state of mind while also bringing calmness to your aura, keeping your body in equilibrium.
