Amazonite jewellery was produced as long as four thousand years ago. It was used in India, Egypt, Sudan and Mesopotamia. The seventh chapter of the Egyptian Book of the Dead was engraved on amazonite, and an Amazonite scarab ring was among Tutankhamen’s treasures. It is believed to have been the third stone in the breastplate of Moses. Amazonite was also used in a jewellery worn in pre-Columbian South and Central America. In ancient Egypt, Amazonite was a popular amulet stone, and the Assyrians associated Amazonite with the god Belus.
Amazonite is a stone of harmony, both within the self and among people. It is a truth-teller and a peacemaker, assisting one in communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. This is the first step towards both inner and outer peace. The second step is activated by Amazonite’s awakening of compassion through stimulation of the heart chakra. Once one has expressed one’s truth, it is necessary to assume the other person’s point of view in order to achieve harmony, and Amazonite facilitates this.
Amazonite can also empower us in manifesting our dreams and desires. It is a magnifier of our intentions, and because it works through the throat chakra, these intentions must be spoken aloud.
Amazonite teaches us to speak the truth and to make what we speak come true.
It open and clears the throat chakra to assist those who tend to repress the expression of their own thoughts and feelings due to fear of confrontation or conflict. This stone also assist one in identifying how one’s words have created current reality, and how to change one’s vocabulary or communication style to reflect a higher, more aligned reality. Amazonite is excellent for those who are in positions of conflict resolution or who need to communicate their own truth more effectively.
Amazonite can also be helpful for those who are out of touch with their truth. When someone doesn’t know what they want, or what they feel, Amazonite can assist them in gaining clarity. For those who are unclear about what they have to offer the world, amazonite can gently point them towards their gifts and knowledge.
Because of its ability to help one to overcome fear of conflict, it frees one to identify and set strong and clear boundaries on physical, energetic and emotional levels. These can be internal boundaries that help one to develop self-discipline, or external boundaries that assist one in defining one’s personal space.
It is an excellent for those who are overly concerned with the opinions and judgments of others, or who may spend too much time offering opinions and judgment to other. It is a stone of ‘right relationship’, assisting one in attaining and maintaining personal balance when in relationship with others or with the world in general.
On a spiritual level, Amazonite assists one in setting appropriate boundaries, both within oneself (discipline) and externally. It helps one to move beyond fear of confrontation or judgment, allowing one more freedom in acting in alignment with one’s higher truth and integrity. It encourages one to walk in right relationship and to speak and live one’s truth for the highest good. It assists one in gaining self-knowledge and in defining one’s core belief and values.
It is helpful in cell regeneration and healing after trauma or injury. It is an excellent stone to use for gout and arthritis. It is helpful in preventing hair loss and helping to repair brittle hair and nails. It can help to balance the thyroid and adrenals, especially when these glands are over-taxed by excessive stress or emotional repression.
I speak and live my highest truth and I can call forth its manifestation in the world.
