Amazonite Meaning and Uses
The soft blue-green of Amazonite is a member of the Throat Chakra, which means it is a particularly calming stone, imparting a strong sense of tranquility. For this reason, it is beneficial in times of stress or anxiety.
Due to the subtle green tones often present, Amazonite is also a member of the upper Heart Chakra, which brings about loving and nurturing feelings, as well as encouraging confidence. Amazonite is a wonderful stone for relating to others and will develop a richer sense of empathy. That being said, one of Amazonite’s most useful functions is in its ability to help one develop clear boundaries.

In terms of the physical body, Amazonite is said to help ease digestive issues – including constipation. This is likely due to the calming nature of Amazonite, as stress is often linked with constipation. Furthermore, Amazonite works wonders for bloating and stomach discomfort.
