More About Amazonite:
Amazonite has been around a long time. The ancient Egyptians used it to make scarabs, and parts of the Egyptian Book of the Dead are carved in amazonite. Some even claim the female warriors known as Amazons used it (though no one seems to know exactly what they used it for.)
More recently, amazonite has been connected to the higher heart, or zeal point chakra. This chakra is associated with finding a sense of inner peace and maintaining your wellbeing. A well-functioning higher heart chakra can help you maintain inner balance, even in times of stress.
One Way to Work with Amazonite:
If you're having a stressful day, try taking a break for some breathing meditation while holding a piece of tumbled amazonite near your higher heart chakra -- right around your collarbone. Focus on your breathing while the stone pulls stress and negativity away from your body.
