Healing properties of Amethyst and Amazonite

Posted by Lea Smith on Sep 5th 2016

Do you ever find yourself completely obsessed with a certain stone or crystal? You desperately look for jewelry that showcases their beauty.  Finding that perfect accessory gives you great joy knowing you can finally strut around town wearing a piece that makes you feel special. Amethyst and Amazonite are both stones that I resonate with and have used in my jewelry line. People often ask me what the healing properties of these stones are and why I use them in my custom jewelry.

Lets start with the amazing Amazonite!

This stone is the stone of truth, honor, communication, and integrity.  It is known to enhance your intuition as well as psychic powers. Your creativity and intellect are thought to be strengthened as well.  This stone is affiliated with the throat chakra, and lessens stress and self-defeating behaviors by calming and building your self-esteem. It is believed to help heal emotional disturbances after a traumatic experience.

Amazonite is thought to have healing properties and helps the heart, nervous system, as well as pregnancy. If you are calcium deficient this stone would be a great one for you as it helps with muscle cramps and spasms. Osteoporosis and tooth decay are also things that Amazonite is known to help prevent or sooth symptoms.

I have used Amazonite in a few of my designs and feel that this powerful stone is one you can wear proudly.


This is a crystaline quartz that you can find in many shades of purple and violet. This stone is known as the "Bishop Stone" and is still worn by catholic bishops. This crystal symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity, and spiritual wisdom. It is also thought to symbolize the "Age of Aquarius".

Worn by many healers, amethyst has the power to help you focus your energy. This crystal helps regulate your blood pressure and breathing. It is thought to keep air and the life force in the home clean and positive.

This beautiful crystal is the birth stone of February.  Many people are just attracted to the simplistic beauty of it's color. I find that the amethyst is a very versatile stone to use in jewelry as it goes with most outfits and usually ends up being a great conversation piece.
