Named after the mighty and enlivening Amazon river that flows through South America, amazonite is a kind of feldspar mineral much like iridescent moonstone and labradorite, that has been tinted blue and green by the presence of lead and water. Opaque in shades that vary from spearmint turquoise to pale greens with asymmetrical white daubs, amazonite is often cut en cabochon into rounded beads flaunting smooth veneers. In crystal healing, amazonite can be used to dampen hostility and calm the body often through placement on the heart and throat chakras.
