The stone of courage and positive energies for decisions
The healing power of stones has been known since ancient times. Stories are known about rocks, crystals and minerals that have become talismans for good energies. Amazonite is part of this category of stones with metaphysical properties.
It is a light aqua green stone with white spots. Its shades can vary from yellowish green to greenish blue. It is a green tectosilicate mineral composed of microcline.
Its name derives from some green stones found in the Amazon River, but being classified as a morphologically rare gemstone, jewelers later decided to call it amazonite, to fit it in a broader meaning.
Where is amazonite found in the world?
The largest source of amazonite, in the past, was in the Ilmen Mountains in the southern Ural Mountains, in the Russian administrative territory known as Miass. Amazonite occurs in the granitic rocks of that area of Russia, near Chelyabinsk.
But in recent years, some areas of North America have become notable for the occurrence of Amazonite. Pike’s Peak, in Colorado, has become one of the main deposits.

Metaphysical stones, when placed on the body, promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing because they interact with the body’s energy field, better known as the “chakras”.
Amazonite has many properties, and is known as a calming stone, as it brings tranquility to the brain and nervous system, and helps maintain optimal health. It also balances the masculine and feminine energies. Amazonite helps to see both sides of a problem, or different points of view.
On the other hand, amazonite is also known as the “stone of courage”, because it allows one to look within oneself and discover one’s truths and integrity, and to overcome the fear of being judged or confrontation with others, to live in line with those beliefs and values.
