Metaphysical & Healing Properties
Amazonite provides harmony and balance and encourages the individual soul's quest for truth and integrity.
It can help in the assertion of one's own thoughts and feelings and provides the strength to define clear boundaries both within and in relation to the external world, and yet it can also grant the user greater perspective, freeing them from judgement and allowing them to see both sides of an issue. This expanded awareness of opposites also aids in the balance of the male and female energies. It soothes the Chakras and helps the physical body align with the etheric whilst keeping the user grounded and protected. Amazonite is particularly associated with the heart through which it facilitates the release of emotional traumas. It also calms the nervous system, alleviating anxiety and dispelling negative, fearful, energy. In the physical realm it's used to relieve issues associated with osteoporosis, tooth decay and calcium deficiency
