Lithotherapy (Stone Therapy) & Metaphysical Value of Amazonite*** Amazonite is referred to by energy healers & light workers as the commuincation crystal or gemstone and referred to as the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth. Full of the qualities of truth, honor, communication, integrity, hope, and trust. Many say it enhances intuition, psychic powers, creativity, intellect, and psychic ability. Amazonite is often associated with the throat chakra, which is why is is said to be beneficial to communication.
Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space. [Eason, 286][Simmons, 22][Ahsian, 22]
As a metaphysical healer, Amazonite soothes the chakras and aligns the physical body to the etheric. It is particularly rejuvenating to the Heart and Throat Chakras, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one’s masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of the personality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accepting differing points of view. [Melody, 106-107][Hall, 50][Simmons, 22]
As a powerful talisman of healing and prosperity, Amazonite has been used in jewelry and cut into beads since the time of the early Mesopotamian cultures. Well-known in India, Egypt, Sudan and Mesopotamia, it was a popular amulet stone and was once used as decorative material for building facades. It was carved and cut into tablets for the Egyptian funerary text, Book of the Dead, and an Amazonite scarab ring was found among Tutankhamen’s treasures. It was believed to be the third stone in the breastplate of the Jewish High Priest. [Altman, 18][Mella, 71][Simmons, 22]
Amazonite was also worn as jewelry in pre-Columbian South and Central America, and was believed to have adorned the shields of the semi-mythical Amazonians, a formidable tribe of female warriors thought to live in the 10th century B.C. They also used Amazonite medicinally to heal wounds and illnesses of all kinds. The conquistadors prized it for adornment and its ability to be carved into cult objects. Amazonite is named for the Amazon River in Brazil and the lush jungle region surrounding it where the original “green stones” were discovered. Whether these stones were what we know today as Amazonite is uncertain, as principal deposits are not currently found in the basin area of this great river. [Simmons, 21-22][Eason, 286][Megemont, 19][naturalgemscompany]
Amazonite, also called Amazon Jade or Amazon Stone, is a green to blue-green variety of Microcline, a Feldspar mineral that forms in short prismatic or tabular crystals or in masses. It ranges in hue from bright verdigris green to paler shades of turquoise, sometimes with white, yellow or grey portions, and can be translucent to opaque. It has a vitreous luster, and when polished resembles finely cracked or spider-webbed marble and displays a Schiller effect of pearly iridescence throughout the stone. Its blue-green color was once thought to be caused by copper compounds, though scientists in the 1980’s discovered it to be from small quantities of lead and water. It fractures easily and is usually cut en cabochon for jewelry purposes. It is a soft stone and care should be taken when wearing, or in storing with other minerals.
