It is known that crystals, due to their atomic makeup, hold heat and focus light energy, the often used example is quartz crystals being used in watches to generate an electric charge. Beyond this, it is said that crystals and gemstones have different energies that can be used to enhance your own energetic vibrations. Each gemstone is known for its unique 'energetic' properties.
Properties: Communication – Truth – Love – Grief
Known as the ‘Stone of Courage’ and the ‘Stone of Truth’. Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths. To move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others. It encourages freedom and courage to express one’s thoughts and feelings and to set clear boundaries; internally for self-discipline, and externally for defining personal space. Releases grief and emotion, bringing balance and encouraging expression of past trauma that may have been held for some time.
