Amazonite can support the balancing of both the heart and throat chakras.

A semi-opaque stone that was used abundantly by the Egyptians, Amazonite is known as the stone of courage. It is said to have acquired its name from the Amazon women warriors who praised the moon goddess, Diana. Since it was discovered near the Amazon River, some believe it is named after this mighty river.

Also known as the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to unveil one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or battle with others, and to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It grants the freedom to communicate one’s thoughts and feelings, and to create strong and clear boundaries.

Amazonite also empowers one to see an issue from another’s perspective in order to promote peace, or to see both sides of a conflict neutrally to resolve one’s own inner struggle.

The gemstone can support the balancing of both the heart and throat chakras. The heart chakra balances our connection with the outer world, and controls what we embrace and what we resist. When the heart hhakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little shortcomings of others. We may find ourselves having inappropriately forceful emotional responses to everyday outward stimuli.

When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world.

Amazonite is also very beneficial for artists as it discharges the wearer’s emotional grief by expressing it creatively. As a result, it is favorable for writers, musicians, dancers, and other artists. As it creates success, it supports the artist to concentrate, and follow through on their projects to completion.

Amazonite is the ideal gemstone to gift to someone who is working with anger issues. It supports in dissolving the irritation that often causes anger within people. Its energies also have the intelligence in helping you release old, stagnant parts of your life that prevent you from moving on and becoming all that you were meant to be.

Interestingly, the gemstone also serves as a barrier filter crystal that blocks geopathic stress, absorbs microwaves and cell phone emission, and also protects against electromagnetic pollution.
