Aquamarine is a beautiful, gentle crystal that comes in colors from almost white/cream thru to a powder soft green, thru to a soft blue/ green. Some specimens give the green marble effect also and are often referred to as the stone of strength and courage.
This crystal has a calming effect on the mind and when used regularly, can reduce stress levels. I find sleeping with Aquamarine at the bottom of the bed where the feet are is an ideal way of drawing out stress and toxins. It is an ideal crystal for sensitive people and those ladies that suffer with bad PMS symptoms.
Aquamarine is an excellent crystal to enhance one’s self esteem and confidence, it can encourage you to look upon yourself with kindness and confidence and break old patterns of self destructive thoughts and low self worth.
This gentle but perceptive crystal clears the way for communication on all levels and increases the capacity for self expression and clarity. It is an ideal Meditation stone as it opens up the intuition, psychic and clairvoyant realms of the human perception.
Aquamarine protects the human Aura and also clears and re-activates the Chakras; as it is a crystal of communication, it is especially good for the throat chakra. This crystal works well on its own or in conjunction with Chrysocolla and Selenite, It can help with sore throats, the thyroid gland and swollen sore glands.
This delicate crystal is also useful for stomach complaints, sore eyes, cleansing the organs, strengthening the immune system and bringing harmony to the physical, mental and spiritual bodies.
Aquamarine is a readily available crystal that can be purchased as a rough specimen, as a tumbled polished stone or in jewelery such as earrings, necklaces, pendants and rings. Wearing a pendant around your neck close to the throat chakra can be very beneficial in operating your communication skills and clearing any negative energy from that area.
