Amazonite is a green variety of microcline, which is a type of feldspar mineral. It gets its distinctive color from small amounts of lead, iron, or copper in its crystal structure.
Amazonite crystals are typically found in granite or pegmatite formations and are often associated with other minerals such as quartz and mica.
In ancient Egypt, it was believed to have been used in the creation of scarabs, and in some Native American cultures, it was used in ceremonial objects.
Amazonite crystals are believed to have metaphysical properties that promote emotional balance, courage, and communication.
They are also said to aid in manifestation, promoting clarity and empowering one's intentions.
Additionally, amazonite is thought to be helpful in calming and reducing anxiety and stress.
Some people also believe that amazonite can enhance psychic abilities and aid in spiritual growth.
