Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 8

History: Amazonite (KAlSi308) is a form of pale green Microcline, a potash feldspar found in Brazil, U.S.S.R., and U.S. Like all other feldspars, Amazonite’s energy works very well when combined with like stones such as topaz and aqua aura. The true discovery of this stone is a mystery based on which authority you talk to. Named for its place of discovery in the Amazon basin, this stone was believed to be jade for centuries. Others believe It was not found anywhere in the Amazon basin, however, Spanish explorers who named it apparently confused it with another green mineral from that region. The parallel shadings caused by the presence of lead, give amazonite its intense color. The best crystals are found near Pike’s Peak. It was used in jewelry in the India, Mesopotamia and the Sudan. In Egypt, amazonite was made into tablets in parts of the Book of the Dead and found in the tomb of King Tut.

DIY Prosperity Pouch

Combine amazonite, tiger’s eye, citrine, aventurine and/or jade along with money plant leaves, eucalyptus leaves or basil leaves.

“From east to south and west to north
 I create safe space for me to work.
I add my stones in circle, round,
To bring prosperity, abound.
Abundance, gratitude, and peace,
May health and happiness increase.”

 Charge your stones in the circle made from the leaves for 24 hours. Then remove the stones, put them in your pouch & carry it with you or keep it in your sacred space or altar for one full cycle of the moon.

Cleansing & Charging Amazonite

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
