Amazonite’s history with humans is long and powerful. It’s semi-mythical origin story is deeply rooted in the Amazon rainforest, for which it gets its name, linked with a fierce tribe of warrior women called the Amazonians. Respected and revered for their strength, the Amazonians adorned their shields with the gorgeous blue-green stone we know today as Amazonite. In parts of Egypt, India, and Mesopotamia, this stone was carved into the facades of structures and jewelry, and for tablets for the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The tomb of Tutankhamen is said to have contained the pharoah’s Amazonite carved ring.
The stone is now found all around the world, with the largest deposits being in Brazil, Ethiopia, Russia, India and Madagascar. Metaphysically, Amazonite is fiercely protective, highly healing, and above all, truthful. Sometimes known as the Amazon Stone, this crystal inspires truth, honesty and sincerity. It helps you set clear boundaries, with yourself and others, and encourages you to live by truth and integrity. It aids in communication and conflict resolution, not by simply speaking your truth, but by encouraging you to see a situation from another’s perspective. It’s an incredibly lucky stone (great for games of chance), and has been revered as one of prosperity, helping you to make wise financial choices and attracting success in your career and business endeavors.
This stone is associated with the Zodiac sign of Virgo and it’s easy to understand why: some recommend placing it in a child or teen’s bedroom to encourage tidiness; another application is to keep it near main living spaces and kitchens to motivate members of the house to help with chores. My favorite applicationof Amazonite, though, is to dispel and block geopathic stress by reducing the impact of EMFs (electro magnetic frequencies). In the modern day, we’re each connected to a device, and even if we aren’t, we’re immersed in the wireless frequencies of all of the devices that others are using around us. Amazonite acts as a barrier and filter, protecting against the harmful radiation given off by cell phones, tablets, laptops, and the appliances in our home (yes, even the dishwasher emits EMFs!) that add to electromagnetic pollution. I keep my Amazonite collection on my desk with my electronics for this very reason.
The crystals in this listing also include beautiful deposits of smoky quartz, so I have listed the metaphysical properties of smoky quartz as well, below. The description of these stones is below. These gorgeous Amazonite palm stones come directly from the source in Madagascar.
Spheres are powerful and potent Earth medicine to have around, especially for those of you not able to work with your crystals as much as you want to or need to. They’re very good for family living spaces or as home or office decor. The reason for this is their shape. Circles and spheres hold heavy symbolism in many cultures and civilizations around the world and throughout time. They represent infinite energy, and indeed, this is what they radiate. When a gemstone is carved into a sphere, it sends its properties out equally in all directions, through every space, into every nook and cranny with minimal effort from you. Of course, our crystals like it when we work with them and they want to be of service; but spheres will sit quietly, radiating their awesomeness into your space all on their own. Just give them a stand, keep them dust-free, smudge them to clear them every once in a while, and enjoy their beauty!
You will receive the exact Amazonite sphere pictured. It measures 4.5 inches in diameter and weighs a whopping 4.5 lbs!!!
I hand pick each and every sphere in the Crystal Lion shop and bring them with love straight to you! I chose this gorgeous sphere for its amazing color, wonderful vibrations, and those incredible smoky quartz streaks! And the sheer SIZE of this beauty; it’s such a treat to be in its presence; it is destined for a sacred space where it can emit its incredible energy outward to many. Smoky quartz and Amazonite is a powerful combination, and these spheres emit the uplifting and positive energy of both of those stones. As always, this crystal comes to you from Madagascar, where it was ecologically mined, and polished by fairly paid artisans and brought directly to you. These don’t pass through multiple hands to get to you so their energy is pure and radiant! As with all my crystals, I would never sell a piece I wouldn’t keep for myself! Enjoy this gorgeous, vibrant treasure!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
