Amazonite is a type of feldspar, named for the Amazon river, where it was first discovered. Thought to be associated with the Amazon women warriors, it is known as the stone of courage and truth. Legend states that the seventh Egyptian Book of the Dead was engraved upon Amazonite, an Amazonite scarab ring was one of King Tutankhamun’s prized jewels, and it was the third stone in the breastplate of Moses. Amazonite is said to bring well-being and health, offering a soothing energy that calms worry and fear and dissolves blockages within the nervous system. It also acts as a powerful barrier, dispelling negative energy and helping one establish boundaries. This makes it a perfect crystal for the workplace. Amazonite is often used for good luck in games, competitions and financial ventures.
