The Amazonite crystal is enigmatic and powerful in its own right. Aligned by Uranus’ ruling house and the universal feminine, it is a perfect addition to any collection.
What Is Amazonite?
The Amazon Stone or amazonite is a bluish-green gemstone that is notable for its bright hues. This mineral is often processed through tumbling or by cutting raw mineral into lovely cabochons. Chemically-speaking, it is a variant of microcline. Microcline is a variant of feldspar, an entire family of minerals with distinct chemical compositions and colors.
This feldspar mineral’s trade name is derived from the Amazon River, known for its mighty nature and the lush forests surrounding it.
Other times, it is marketed as the “Amazon jade,” which is entirely wrong because it’s not a type of jade at all. Jade is an entirely different mineral and has nothing to do with the feldspar family.
What Color Is Amazonite?
Amazonite often occurs as a bluish-green gemstone. Its fantastic color is said to be lead, which is interspersed within its crystalline matrix.

Where Is Amazonite Found?
Contrary to common belief, amazonite is not found chiefly in the Amazon River. However, amazonite can indeed be found in several deposits scattered throughout Brazil. Additionally, these locales also have even more valuable gemstones like sapphire, amethysts, and emeralds.
While Brazil has many mines that produce commercial-quality amazonite, this feldspar can also be found in other countries like China, Madagascar, Libya, and Canada. It is a sought after feldspar because it does bear a resemblance to jade, which is the royal gemstone of ancient China.
Amazonite is precious and highly sought after, no matter what country it comes from. There are slight variations in the appearances depending on where it was found, but generally speaking, amazonite fetches consistent value/price wherever you may happen to buy it.
The bluish-green amazonite is as mighty as its name and is associated with two vital chakras: the throat chakra and the heart chakra.
The amazonite is also the gemstone of Virgos and is associated with Uranus. Uranus’s guiding planet is the most significant source of rebellion, eccentricities, and reformations in the Universe. It is chaos and order combined.
This being the case, a person ruled by this planet is often headstrong and is not afraid of change in any form. The ‘downside’ is that people are sometimes unpredictable, but the unpredictability is still ruled by logic and order of a higher kind.
Amazonite is also associated with the soft power of water and the intensely grounding energies of the earth. Bringing amazonite into your home is bringing home peace and tranquillity. All earth elements can draw away impurities and negative energies.
On the other hand, the water element can bring harmony and peace to the most toxic and benighted spaces. Earth and water stone is a gift of harmony and never-ending peace and should be appreciated by people who will benefit from its subtle, healing energies.
