Originally thought to come from the Amazon River, Amazonite (or Amazonstone) is known to be found all over the world. It has been used for over 2,000 years. It is known as the “Hope Stone” and has a “go-with-the-flow” energy with a powerful connection to the Heart Chakra. The stone has long been revered for attracting hope to those who wear it and is an excellent manifestation tool. It helps to release toxic emotions and other negative energy from your heart space. Amazonite can also be helpful in balancing and clearing out the Throat Chakra and supports communication.
Amazonite is a birthstone for those born under the Zodiac sign of Virgo. It is a stone that encourages kindness and self-respect and brings out that balance in Virgo’s who tend to have a harsh inner judge.
