Amazonite is one of my favorite stones to use in jewelry, its tropical mix of blues, greens & tans remind me of many colors of the Caribbean ocean and the beaches I’ve visited when going to Punta Cana, Jamaica & Mexico These are my favorite places to relax and rejuvenate. Because I’m naturally drawn to Amazonite, I wanted it to be the first stone I truly researched and shared with you.
To make it simple Amazonite is associated with the following:
Amazonite has been used as far back as 4,000 years ago in India, the Sudan, Egypt, and Mesopotamia. Amazonite was a precious stone in ancient Egypt. It was found in a scarab ring in Tutankhamen’s treasures in his tomb. The seventh chapter of the Egyptian Book of the Dead is in engraved on Amazonite. It was said to have been used in the breast plate of high priests and even Moses himself. Amazonite was also found in the ruins of ancient Columbia and Central America and the Assyrians often linked Amazonite to their god Belus, the son of Poseidon and Libya.
Amazonite is said to be used to treat nervous system disorders. It aids in dissipating energy blockages, balancing the improper flow of neural impulses as well as balancing the metabolic process in regard to calcium assimilation in the body. It is a healing stone for many physical traumas and injuries by assisting with cell regeneration. It is also a good stone for those with arthritis and gout. It is known to aid in the prevention of hair loss and brittle nails. When used as elixir 3 times a day, it can be used to help with osteoporosis, tooth deterioration, even assisting with dispersing muscle spasms.
Amazonite is known by many names: The truth teller, the harmony stone, and the peace maker. During conflict resolution, it helps the wearer communicate their true thoughts and feelings without excess emotion, keeping you balanced. The stone also allows the wearer to be open to the other persons point of view in order to attain harmony. Amazonite is a great stone for also identifying how words manifest and how to change the way you speak bring about a more aligned reality.
When worn while sleeping or meditating, Amazonite it can help the dreamer/meditator bring into focus the symbolism of dreams and meditative thought. With Amazonite being the truth stone, it helps one trust their dreams and intuitive thought as truth. It is a magnifier of spoken intentions, activating the Throat Chakra when worn, bringing spoken word into being.
Wearing Amazonite can assist those that are unsure about their path by pushing them in the direction needed to help the wearer find their way. It is a good gift to those who may be over concerned about the opinions and judgements of other people and also good for those who are being overly judge-mental and vocal about their judgements by aligning the words of the wearer with their actions.
Lastly Amazonite is a boundary setter. It assists the wearer in being more proactive about setting boundaries for others who are energy vampires, while at the same time setting appropriate boundaries for oneself.
