Imagine a dip in a crystal blue mountain lake - the morning air crisp and expectant, the sky soaring high and cloudless overhead. This is the unique refreshment of Aquamarine. The name means “ocean water,” and tales of Aquamarine date back to ancient seafaring days. Sailors of old believed that these glittering, watery gems came from the treasure chests of mermaids.
Aquamarine is said to bring luck to all who sail the seas. Aquamarine also promises love, health and youthful energy to those who wear it. Modern-day etiquette suggests Aquamarine as the gem of choice to celebrate March birthdays and the 16th and 19th anniversaries. As most Americans choose blue as a favorite color,
Aquamarine’s powdery hue is a perfect gem for blue lovers. While Aquamarine is a member of the Beryl family, a cousin to Emerald and Morganite, its color is more pure and its attributes less brittle than Emerald, making it a desirable gem for special occasion wear.
"A gift of aquamarine symbolizes both safety and security, especially within long-standing relationships. Some people even say that the aquamarine reawakens love when love has grown cold."
Aquamarine is a stone of courage. Its calming energies reduce stress and quiet the mind. It harmonizes its surroundings and protects against pollutants. In ancient times it was believed to counteract the forces of darkness and procure favor from the spirits of light. It was carried by sailors as a talisman against drowning.
Psychologically, Aquamarine has an affinity with sensitive people. It has the power to invoke tolerance of others. It overcomes judgmentalism, gives support to anyone who is overwhelmed by responsibility, and encourages taking responsibility for oneself. It creates a personality that is upright, persistent, and dynamic. It can break old, self-defeating programs. Aquamarine calms the mind, removing extraneous thought. It filters information reaching the brain and clarifies perception, sharpens the intellect, and clears up confusion.
Spiritually, Aquamarine sharpens intuition and opens clairvoyance. A wonderful stone for meditation, it invokes high states of consciousness and spiritual awareness and encourages service to humanity. Aquamarine shields the aura* and aligns the chakras*, clearing the throat chakra and bringing communication from a higher plane. It also aligns the physical and spiritual bodies.
