Amazonite is a stone characteristic of harmony, communication, truth, and epic boundary-setting.

The Chakras that are most often related to this crystal are the throat chakra and the heart chakra. Its vibrant energies resonate with these energy centers, facilitating clear communication, heartfelt expression, and emotional healing.

Whether you’re seeking your own higher-truth, to move past fear and judgment, or want help determining your energetic boundaries, Amazonite is it!

Amazonite is beneficial for those born under the zodiac sign of Virgo. It complements their anaytical nature by fostering balance, harmony, and effective communication.

This stone is also connected to the element of water. It harnesses the fluid and calming energies of water, promoting emotional healing, and enhancing intuition.

The planet associated with Amazonite is Uranus which is known for its properties of innovation, insight, and awakening. The energy of Uranus further enhances the transformative properties of Amazonite, stimulating personal growth and encouraging fresh perspectives.

Amazonite Possesses a Mohs hardness score of 6 to 6.5 on the hardness scale. While it is moderately durable, it is advisable to handle it with care to prevent scratches or damage.

Amazonite also belongs to the triclinic crystal system. This is characterized by its three unequal axes and angles, lending it a unique appearance. It is composed primarily of potassium aluminum silicate, its chemical formula is K(AlSi3O8). This crystal displays an enchanting range of colors including pale green, aqua-green, and sometimes blue-green hues. It also exhibits a translucent to opaque clarity, with variations in transparency across different specimens. The presence of natural mineral inclusions can contribute to its mesmerizing patterns and color variations.

And… fun fact! Amazonite was not in fact named after the Amazonians (we know… Wonder Woman is a little disappointed to hear this)… but is named after the Amazon River in Brazil where large deposits have been found. Other Amazonite locations include Russia, Madagascar, and the United States.

Its use is also prominent in ancient cultures including with Egyptians, Jews, Assyrians and of course pre-Columbians.
