Healing Amazonite Definition
Amazonite was named after the Amazon River. The stone, or ones that resembled it, was treasured among the Pre-Columbian, South and Central American natives. Archaeologists theorize that the stones found in the river were nephrite, although real amazonite occurs in South America.
Even with this origin, archaeologists found the stone in Egypt and Mesopotamia ruins. Ancient Egyptians would carve and adorn themselves with amazonite jewelry. They believed that wearing the stone would help with fertility and good luck.
Amazonite is the birthstone for people born between August 23rd and September 22nd, the zodiac sign Virgo. However, some experts claim that this stone can be very beneficial for people born in the Zodiac sign of Scorpio, Aries, and Leo.
