Amazonite is an easy effortless semiprecious stone.
Anyone that has read any of my blog posts before knows I love Amazonite. It is my absolute favorite semiprecious stone. I love it so much!!!
I could probably write a whole blog post on why it’s named after the Amazon River, what’s it made up of and where it is found. But today I’m going to talk about it’s properties, and colors and why I think it’s the most easy effortless stone to both work with and wear.
Amazonite has been used for centuries, in jewelry, statues and amulets. It’s appreciated for it’s beauty and it’s beneficial properties. It’s been said in the 10th century South America, women used it to cure illnesses, adorn their shields and heal wounds. I’ve seen it called “The Amazon Stone”, the “Stone of Hope”, the “Stone of Truth” and the “Stone of Courage”. It is said to said to have a calming effect on the soul. It imparts balance and harmony and quiets the mind.
It is empowering, facilitating self-discovery, self-awareness and the ability to embrace one’s own integrity and truths. Amazonite powers bolster the confidence to shrug off fear of confrontation or harsh judgment from others while living according to one’s own values and beliefs, all of which is included in amazonite meaning. -www.thehealingchest.com
It is also said to give the wearer strength to confidently express themselves. You should wear when taking a test, going to a job interview or on a date. Anything that makes you feel confident in your own skin is what True Happiness Designs is all about.
Why I like it:
As you can see by the first picture Amazonite comes in different colors, plain milky blue, blue and black and Rainbow Amazonite which has shades anywhere from yellow, pinks, blues, greens, beiges, browns to blacks and that’s what I use 90% of the time. It’s so effortless because it can be used in so many ways. And the second picture is my favorite shape, rondelle. Like a circle that someone squished and made it short and fat.
