Metaphysic and Physical Properties of Amazonite from Madagascar

AMAZONITE

Amazonite (sometimes called "Amazon stone") is a green variety of microcline feldspar.
 
The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area.
 
Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence. Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmen mountains, 50 miles southwest of Chelyabinsk, Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's Peak, Colorado, where it is found associated with smoky quartz, orthoclase, and albite in a coarse granite or pegmatite. Crystal Park, El Paso County, Colorado is a well-known locality for crystals of amazonite. Some other localities in the United States yield amazonite, and it is also found in pegmatite in Madagascar and in Brazil.
 
Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as a gemstone, although it is easily fractured.
 
For many years, the source of amazonite's color was a mystery. Naturally, many people assumed the color was due to copper because copper compounds often have blue and green colors. More recent studies suggest that the blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water in the feldspar. (Hoffmeister and Rossman, 1985)

Amazonite is great for non-verbal expression. It is a good energy filter, blocking geopathic stress as well as electromagnetic pollution emitted from computers, microwaves, or cell phones. Amazonite soothes aggravation and emotional trauma, eases irritation, and calms all of the chakras. Amazonite also assists the user in seeing different sides of the same issue, and balances masculine and feminine energy as well as different personality traits.

Amazonite can be used to connect and communicate with Fairies and Nature Spirits. Amazonite is a �Stone of Success and Abundance�, attracting focus and good luck. Amazonite can aid in a peaceful transition when it is time to leave this life. Amazonite aligns the physical and subtle bodies, and assists in balancing the yin and yang (male and female) energies, helping one to escape the illusion of separation from the Divine.

Physically, Amazonite can assist with throat, sinus, chest and lung issues. Use Amazonite to help in maintaining overall health and a healthy lifestyle.
