Crystal of the Month: Amazonite...

Amazonite is a type of potassium feldspar that crystalizes in masses, prismatic crystals, and tabular crystals. It usually comes in turquoise, but has also been found in grey, yellow, and white. Amazonite is known as the "Stone of Hope", helping to instill both Hope and Faith to those who wear it daily. The "Amazon Stone" is known for its healing properties, and was thought to have been discovered in the Amazon River Basin in Brazil. There is a Brazilian legend that states that the Amazon people gave green stones to the visitors of the area.

Amazonite is soothing for the heart, helping to pacify one's emotions, let go of worries and fears, and dispel negative energy. As a balancing stone, Amazonite helps to harmonize male and female energies, aspects of the personality, and the spiritual and physical dimensions. This is the stone to help synthesize duality, and harmonize oneness with Universal Love.

Amazonite is wonderful for nervous system disorders, nerve issues, and energetic blocks. Taken orally as an elixir, it can help to balance calcium deficiencies that result in tooth decay and osteoporosis, and to help dissolve calcium deposits in the body. Amazonite is also great to use for muscle spasms. It was found with the treasures of Tutankhamen, and is known to rejuvenate the chakras - especially the heart chakra. This month, Amazonite is a great supporter of clarity, spiritual harmony, and the balance of the dualistic aspects of the brain and the mind.
