amazonite for inner peace

Amazonite has been around a long time. The ancient Egyptians used it to make scarabs, and parts of the Egyptian Book of the Dead are carved in amazonite. Some even claim the female warriors known as Amazons used it (though no one seems to know exactly what they used it for.)

More recently, amazonite has been connected to the higher heart, or zeal point chakra. This chakra is associated with finding a sense of inner peace and maintaining your wellbeing. A well-functioning higher heart chakra can help you maintain inner balance, even in times of stress.

Metaphysical properties: Use at the 4th Chakra (Heart Chakra) or at the 5th Chakra (Throat Chakra) for blocking electromagnetic energy, to encourage truthfulness, for balancing the mind, body, and spirit, for soothing and comfort after trauma, to manifest the love of the universe, to facilitate a connection with nature, for balancing the chakras, to overcome fears, to stimulate positive communication, to benefit bone health, and to relax muscles.

Other names: Also known as Amazon Stone, Amazonstone, Mother of Emerald, Colorado Jade, Amazon Jade, or as Blue-Green Microcline

One way to use this stone: If you’ve having a stressful day, try taking a break for some breathing meditation while holding a piece of tumbled amazonite near your higher heart chakra — right around your collarbone. Focus on your breathing while the stone pulls stress and negativity away from your body.
