About: Amazonite is a green variety of microcline feldspar whose name is derived from the Amazon river from which green stones were obtained at one point in time even though it is doubtful that amazonite can be found in the amazon at this point in time.
It was well known in Egypt, India, and Mesopotamia and has been used for centuries in amulets and jewellery.
Today, it is almost exclusively found in granitic rocks in the Llmen Mountains of Russia, but it has also been found in the Rocky Mountains of the USA and even in Madagascar and Brazil.
Metaphysical: Amazonite has been called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth because it may empower the wearer to have the courage to look honestly and openly inside themselves and uncover the inner truths that we are struggling to bring forth in this lifetime.
It may sooth emotional trauma and calms the mind in times of high emotional stress. This stone may be particularly effective when working with the throat and heart chakras due to its ability to assist in connecting to the ethereal plane and enhance loving and compassionate communication.
