Amazonite

Also known as "green feldspar," Amazonite was originally named for the area in which it was first sited, the Amazon. More precisely, it was first spotted being used as amulets by the legendary Amazon women warriors (historically, my most favorite group of women) in Brazil. Thus, it has been dubbed the "stone of courage." The Egyptians also considered it a holy stone.

Healers use Amazonite to treat metabolic disorders, heart trouble, and anxiety. It is also frequently used to promote courage and determination in a person. Place it under your pillow and you'll receive a more restorative rest.

Astrologically, amazonite is associated with Aquarius.
