A piece of Amazonite with lovely color which has been carved into a medium sized heart.
Amazonite is a green variety of microcline feldspar. Amazonites name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area.
Amazonite is a mineral of limited occurrence. Formerly it was obtained almost exclusively from the area of Miass in the Ilmen Mountains, 50 miles southwest of Chelyabinsk, Russia, where it occurs in granitic rocks. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Pike's Peak, Colorado.

Amazonite is a stone of harmony, both within the self and among people. It is a truth teller and a peacemaker, assisting one in communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. Amazonite awakens compassion through stimulation of the heart chakra.
Sleeping with Amazonite can bring one’s competing unconscious tendencies into focus through the symbolism of dreams. Meditation with Amazonite makes everything more conscious, so one can listen to and integrate all aspects of the self. Because it is a stone of truth, one can trust the visions, dreams and intuitions that surface while working with it.
Amazonite can also empower us in manifesting our dreams and desires. It is a magnifier of our intentions, and because it works through the throat chakra, these intentions must be spoken aloud. Holding an Amazonite while affirming aloud what one wishes to create can powerfully enhance one’s ability to bring it into being. The power of the spoken word is a great and mystical thing, Amazonite teaches us to speak the truth and to make what we speak come true.
