Aquamarine, the stone of the month of March, synonymous with happiness, youth, vitality and spirituality.The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus , meaning "water of the sea," and refers to its bright, ocean-like color. The pale blue transparent crystal is a member of the Beryl family. Its color, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides within the stone's chemical composition.
Aquamarine embodies all things related to the sea, as well as things related to Heaven reflected on the surface of the water.
In mythology, it was believed that Aquamarine managed to calm the fury of Neptune or Poseidon, God of the Sea. For this reason, sailors had the custom of throwing amulets of this precious stone to calm the fury of these angry gods.
The different varieties of aquamarine are extracted from Brazil and Russia, where the most appreciated specimens have been found, but deposits are also found in Africa, the United States, Sri Lanka, Ecuador, India, Tanzania, Malawi and Kenya.
Aquamarine is a stone of the Water element, powerful to cleanse the emotional body and open communication. Its gentle energy brings emotional patterns to the surface and helps understand the reason for holding on to old thoughts or patterns that limit progress. It also identifies where the ego is causing one to overreact, assume a victim/abuser role, manipulate others, or self-martyr. By consciously releasing these patterns, you allow for better relationships, love, and compassion.
Aquamarine helps balance excessive anger or fear. It can also help eliminate past emotional, physical, or verbal abuse.
It is useful for moving through transition and change. Its cleansing energy eliminates resistance and helps you overcome fear of the unknown. It helps not only release emotional baggage, but also clear physical items and clutter.
It emits a kind and compassionate energy, promoting moderation and responsibility for your actions. It inspires critical people to be more tolerant and helps those who are overwhelmed by responsibility find order.
It is the stone of justice, compromise and negotiations. It gives courage and calm and helps you carefully select words in confrontational situations. Pass an aqua over any written complaint you receive or before submitting one. We also recommend carrying one when visiting places for a complaint or when resolving neighborhood disputes.
Aquamarine is often given as a token of love or an eternity ring, and increases commitment and fidelity "as long as the waters of the earth flow."
It is perhaps the strongest stone for cleansing and activating the throat chakra. It stimulates energy from the heart to the throat, allowing the deepest, most heartfelt truth to be communicated.
The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows the energy of the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or imbalanced, it can affect the health of the other chakras.
