Collection: Stone of the Month

The July stone of the month is Amazonite.

Amazonite, also called Amazon Jade or Amazon Stone, is a green to blue-green variety of Microcline, a Feldspar mineral. It ranges in hue from bright green to paler shades of turquoise, sometimes with white, yellow, or grey portions, and can be translucent to opaque. Black Gold Amazonite comes from inclusions of Tourmaline and Pyrite the colors of this stone can be cream, pale blue and green, light brown, gray, and black.


 

Amazonite is named for the Amazon River in Brazil and the lush jungle region surrounding it where the original “green stones” were discovered. Whether these stones were what we know today as Amazonite is uncertain, as principal deposits are not currently found in the basin area of this great river. 

The blue-green color of Amazonite was once thought to be caused by copper compounds. However, scientists in the 1980s discovered that it's actually due to small quantities of lead and water. 

 Amazonite carries a spiritual energy of personal truth. It enhances the interaction between the intellect and intuition, allowing one to find what is right and true within the self. It also allows you to lovingly communicate those values and beliefs to others. Amazonite can provide clarity for those who are out of touch with their truth or who are unsure of what they have to offer the world. This is done by gently guiding them toward their gifts and knowledge. Amazonite also empowers us to manifest our dreams and desires by magnifying our intentions. Because it works through the Throat Chakra, these intentions must be spoken aloud. By holding an Amazonite and forcefully affirming aloud what you wish to create, it can powerfully enhance one’s ability to bring it into being.

Amulet of Sekhmet, Egypt, 664-332 BCE

As a powerful talisman of healing and prosperity, Amazonite has been used in jewelry and cut into beads since the time of the early Mesopotamian cultures. Well-known in India, Egypt, Sudan, and Mesopotamia, it was a popular amulet stone and was once used as decorative material for building facades. It was carved and cut into tablets for the Egyptian funerary text, Book of the Dead, and an Amazonite scarab ring was found among Tutankhamen’s treasures. It was believed to be the third stone in the breastplate of the Jewish High Priest.

 Amazonite was also worn as jewelry in pre-Columbian South and Central America and was believed to have adorned the shields of the semi-mythical Amazonians, a formidable tribe of female warriors thought to live in the 10th century B.C. They also used Amazonite medicinally to heal wounds and illnesses of all kinds. The conquistadors prized it for adornment and its ability to be carved into cult objects.
