The Properties, Meaning And Virtues Of The Amazonite Stone

Due to its beautiful color and important virtues, the Amazonite stone is often confused with tourmaline or Chinese Jade. People who wear or carry it with them will be able to find their spontaneity and use the stones powers to fight against depression! But these are not its only benefits. With the passing of time, the Amazon warriors, the Egyptians and the jewelers all fell under the charm of this bewitching blue-green gem, and now it's your turn! Learn more about its history and what it can do to help and protect you.

In addition to their beautiful appearance, which by the way makes them prized by jewelers, precious and semi-precious stones possess surprising powers. They were first used back in ancient times and have continued to show us their somewhat surprising merits. Before you discover this mineral, here’s what you need to know:

What are the origins of Amazonite?

The amazonite stone has several deposits and the most famous of which are in South Africa, Austria, Brazil, Canada, the United States, Ethiopia, Finland, India and Russia. It is therefore rather easy to find, but the circumstances of its discovery remain unclear.

The blue waters of the Amazon river

History reveals that this mineral was discovered for the first time near the Amazon River, from where it took its name. However, studies on this subject have proven that there were no deposits of amazonite in this region. One would thus have confused the mineral with another! In any case, its color reminds us of the turquoise blue waters of the river and the stone has kept this name despite this unfortunate confusion.

A very precious stone in Ancient times

Amazonite stone was first used in antiquity, 3,000 years before our era. It was found in Egypt, India, Mesopotamia and Sudan. In Egypt, it was widely used to make jewelry and the scarab ring found in the tomb of Tutankhamun is proof of this! We can also see a plate of amazonite engraved with a few lines of text on the Book of the Dead.

In Mesopotamia, amazonite also had an important place since it was associated with Tiamat, the goddess of the oceans and salt water. It had the virtue of keeping chaos at bay. The Greeks used amazonite to decorate their shields and to protect them, as did the Amazon warriors.

Amazonite is indeed known as the "stone of the Amazons". The Amerindians of the Rio Negro said that they came from the "country of women without men". This stone therefore invites you to be autonomous and helps you to take your life in hand by detaching yourself from negative feelings. It allows you to become aware that you don't need anyone and can go at things alone.


Nowadays, the amazonite stone is primarily used for its properties, but also in jewelry, just like the Egyptians did. Many rings, pendants, bracelets, or pearl necklaces are made of amazonite.

It's a stone that heals and has many benefits

Gemstones are known for their physical and psychological benefits. It is therefore possible to heal oneself thanks to them! Amazonite is useful for:

  • Helping to awaken the joy of life and not to take everything seriously.
  • Recovering your child's soul
  • Fighting depression
  • Favoring human contact and spontaneity
  • Calming the nervous system
  • Fighting stress
  • Toning up the blood circulation
  • Reducing cramps and stiffness due to osteoarthritis
  • Absorbing calcium
  • Preventing cavities
  • Soothing skin infections

Did you know?...

Apart from soothing you emotionally and physically, Amazonite stone can purify your interior... It has the power to eliminate electromagnetic and electrostatic waves emitted by our telephones and computers, among others. Not bad, right?

How to recharge an Amazonite stone of its energies:

To purify Amazonite before a session of lithotherapy, simply rinse it with demineralized water. Then use a quartz or amethyst heap to recharge it.  

Interesting tip: If you don't have demineralized water available, rainwater can also do the trick. Think about collecting some or wait until the weather is not sunny!
