With its stunning, cool shades of blue, Aquamarine is a beautiful gemstone.
When this gorgeous stone is handcrafted in silver by craftswoman, Angela Blessing, in her Santa Cruz studio, it evokes a great sense of peace and beauty.
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin and not surprisingly means, “water of the sea.”
Who benefits from wearing Aquamarine?
Aquamarine is associated with the Throat Chakra and therefore can assist someone to overcome their fear of speaking.
It also encourages teachers and public speakers to communicate more clearly, relaxing them in front of their audiences and generating a confident, wise aura.
Aquamarine helps all of us communicate without anger or tension.
It allows us to deal calmly with stressful situations as we become more conscious of our own feelings and convictions.
Aquamarine is the stone that encourages service to the local community and the wider world.
This is particularly true if there are areas of conflict which need resolution.
Aquamarine is also useful for lovers who are trying to blend their different lifestyles together.
It aids the pair to overcome issues which are making them argue and help them reach a higher level of commitment.
The stone of the Moon and the Sea
Aquamarine’s pale blue color can sometimes have a shadow of green in it.
These are caused by iron oxides from which the stone is created.
Aquamarine was considered by ancient seers to be under the power of the Moon.
Today it is used to “see” upcoming events when the Moon is rising.
Its power is increased at this time because of the magnetism of the Moon on the stone’s iron oxide elements.
Aquamarine visually embodies all things of the sea, too.
It is particularly useful when meditating and wanting to see past our Earthly existence.
For this reason it has been a popular choice by healers, shamans, mystics and prophets across the ages.
Wearing Aquamarine will bring you a deeper sense of peace and calm as you are better able to articulate your concerns and wisely celebrate you are in the moment.
