A Journey through the Amazon
Imagine yourself floating effortlessly through a warm body of water, exhaling tension as you travel downstream and inhaling harmony, balance, and loving connection into your life. These are just a few of the healing qualities of Amazonite, an anti-anxiety remedy of the crystal world also known as the “Stone of Truth and Courage”.
Due to the small amounts of lead and water in its feldspar structure, Amazonite shines brilliantly with rich emerald hues and specs of light-green highlights. Although its name is derived from the fertile landscapes of the Amazon Rainforest where it is said to have first been discovered, granitic deposits of this stone now exist in the dry climates of El Paso County, Colorado, as well as the Ilmensky Mountains of Russia, the Tibesti Mountains of Libya, and the Baishitouquan granite intrusion in China.
The timeless powers of Amazonite are apparent through the ways that powerful women in ancient Amazonian tribes adorned their protective shields with chunks of this stone. Amazonite is a talisman of prosperity and empowerment, as it dispels negative energy, helps overcome feelings of loneliness, and magnetizes good luck and fortune in your life.
