Healing Properties of Amazonite
Spiritual: Amazonite is a stone of courage and reveals the lie inherent in “victim mentality”. It teaches us that we are the master of our own fate and that we have the power to do great things. It helps us to heal from the hurt of the past and to use the past as fuel to move us forward into a healthier future. Amazonite reminds us of who we truly are and helps us to move beyond our fear of judgement or failure. It brings us into correct alignment and balance with all that is real and good. Amazonite strengthens the aura and protects us from EMF radiation, particularly cellphones and televisions. It is attuned to the Heart and Throat Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Virgo. It is connected to the element of Water and vibrates to the number 5.
Emotional: Amazonite is a calming stone that helps to balance out mood extremes. It encourage us to trust that “all will be well” and helps guide us along the path to inner and outer harmony. Amazonite enhances all communications concerning love and male/female energies. It is particularly good for helping us to create and maintain healthy boundaries.
Mental: Amazonite encourages problem solving by uniting logic and intuition. It soothes mental irritations and helps speed up the process of intellectually working through emotional issues. Amazonite empowers us to consciously manifest our dreams and desires and will magnify intentions which are spoken aloud.
Physical: Amazonite is said to reduce tension in the body. It is most commonly used by metaphysical healers to treat menstrual cramps and to ease the pain of childbirth. It is also used to heal the adrenal glands, brain, heart and liver. It is thought to align the physical body with the etheric and astral bodies, making Amazonite a wonderful healing stone for general health maintenance and preventive care. Amazonite is also thought to help the body better absorb calcium and guard against osteoporosis.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Ethically Sourced Amazonite Heart
I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.

Safe Handling of Amazonite
Cleaning Healing Crystals
There are many ways to cleanse, charge, and set intentions with crystals.
Before cleaning your healing crystals, always consider the geology of each stone. Some stones are sensitive to water and/or sunlight. Best Practice is to keep your stones out of direct sunlight when you’re not working with them, simply because the sunlight will fade the crystal’s color over time. This is especially true for transparent and translucent gems. Remember crystals grow underground where it’s nice and dark! Stones that are formed in dry desert conditions may be harmed by immersion in water. This is especially true for fragile and porous stones.
One of the easiest and most effective way to energetically clean crystals is to smudge them with smoke from plants like sage, juniper, cedar, lavender, tobacco, etc. Each plant has its own unique smell and spiritual property. Moonrise Crystals smudges with white mountain sage (for cleansing) and sweet grass (for kindness) before the crystals are sent to their forever home with you.
Other common ways to energetically clean healing crystals are to set stones near a piece of Carnelian, Citrine, Kyanite, Selenite or other stones that are energy purifiers. Be sure to pamper the purifying stones regularly so that they can continue to do their job properly. Citrine and Kyanite are self-cleansers that don’t “need” extra care. But they will love getting extra attention from you!
If a stone is doing a lot of heavy energetic work, one of the best ways to restore its energy reserves is to allow it to rest on the earth, next to a plant. A potted plant inside the house works just fine. Let the crystal rest overnight or longer, until its energy feels bright and sparkly again.
Charging and Setting Intentions with Healing Crystals
There is no right/wrong way to charge and set intentions. But here’s a few ways that it’s done at Moonrise Crystals.
Cleanse the crystals and yourself. It is good to take the time to physically clean stones before doing spiritual work. It sets a tone of purity, respect, and reverence. Hold the crystals or be near them. Sing or talk to the stones. Tell them about yourself and what you are working on. Ask them for their help. You don’t need to use any special words, simply speak from the heart. Treat the crystals like your best friends and closest allies. They want to help you.
If you feel shy or awkward, you can also write your message on a piece of paper and set the stones on top of it. Music, including singing bowls, can also be used. The most important thing is simply to be present with the stones and focused on setting the intention.
This can be done at any time, day or night. However, nighttime is often a particularly good time for setting intentions. Take the crystals outside, if possible. You can talk to your crystals outside, or you may just want to sit near them and meditate or pray.
- During the Full Moon, energy is amplified. It is also a wonderful time to celebrate in the bright light when your intentions are already going well and you want to keep the trend going.
- The New Moon is a time for new beginnings. The darkness is like planting a seed underground. It will grow up into the Light.
- Eclipses, meteorite showers, and other astronomical events will add their own unique energy.
- Knowing where the moon is astrologically, can also add a fun element to intention setting. The moon changes signs every 2-3 days.
