Amazonite, also known as ‘Amazon stone,’ takes its name from the majestic River Amazon. It was first cited in French in 1701 as “Pierre des Amazones,” meaning stone of the Amazon. In 1847 its name was modified, and the stone was officially christened “amazonite,” by the noted mineralogist August Breithaupt, who is said to have named it after an unspecified location near the Amazon River. Fun fact: there are no known sources of Amazonite in the Amazon River basin!
The spiritual meaning of Amazonite is one of hope and courage. Its sea-greens and blues speak to its connection to water and the qualities of the stone are said to be soothing, calming and inspirational in achieving restfulness and tranquility.
