Amazonite is a translucent to opaque feldspar gemstone with a pretty green colour. It is the greenish variety of the mineral Microcline. Amazonite is named after the Amazon River of South America.
There are no Amazonite deposits that exist in the Amazon region, so presumably, this stone is named to its resemblance in colour to the green of the tropical rainforest. The colors of Amazonite range from a deep blue, to Turquoise, to blue-green. The stone was first reported back in 1847 by A. Breithaupt and its name derives from the Amazon River in Brazil.
A soothing stone it calms & balances. Amazonite helps you to see both sides of a problem or different points of view. It soothes emotional trauma, alleviating worry & fear. It works directly against habits of self-neglect, inviting you to always put yourself first.
