Aquamarine is a “Stone of Courage and Protection”; the name comes from the Latin “aqua” meaning water and “marinus” meaning of the sea. It is a common stone, mainly sourced from Brazil, but also found in Afghanistan, America, Australia, Burma, Canada, India, Ireland, Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan, Russia and Zimbabwe. It is a form of Beryllium Aluminium Silicate. Its colour can vary tremendously from green to turquoise green/blue and can appear transparent or translucent depending on the quality or grade of the crystal.
Aquamarine is often used to enhance spiritual communication and to clear communication blocks. It will allow the wearer to speak clearly and without anger in difficult situations. Its energy allows emotional patterns to surface and helps see the reason for holding onto old thoughts or patterns that are halting or limiting forward motion.
It also identifies where overreaction is caused by ego, where you may be assuming a victim/abuser role, manipulating others, or martyring yourself. By consciously releasing these patterns, it allows for better relationships, love and compassion.
In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids; and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection as it was believed to counteract the forces of darkness and procure favour from the spirits of light. According to myth, the power of Aquamarine is so pure that no impurities can exist in its vicinity; a true example of good over evil.
It is still carried as a talisman to promote safe travel on the water and to protect against drowning today. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Historically, amongst some traditional practises, it was said that it is possible to see your guardian angel if you looked through an Aquamarine crystal when it was pointed to the north.
Peace & Inspiration
Aquamarine honours Kuan Yin, a Third Ray Ascended Master and the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Compassion, and Unconditional Love. She is the most beloved of the Chinese Goddesses and is regarded by many as the protector of women and children, and champion of the less fortunate. It also honours Akna, the Mayan Goddess of Motherhood, and Kupala, the Slavonic Water Goddess.
Aquamarine is primarily associated with the Heart Chakra (Anahata) which is associated with love and compassion. Its secondary chakras are the Third Eye (Ajna) to stimulate psychic abilities and communications with being of higher realms, the Throat (Vishuddha) clairaudience ability and the Thymus Chakra, or Higher Heart Chakra, the seat of acceptance, compassion, and inner peace, and the bridge between the voice of reason and the heart’s emotions. Aquamarine is also used to align all of the chakras and enhance the aura.
In crystal healing, Aquamarine is said to help with symptoms relating to acne, allergies, autoimmune disorders, bladder, brain, bronchitis, colds, coughs, eczema, eyes, feet, glands, hay fever, jaw, legs, liver, the lymphatic system, nausea, neck, oedema, the pituitary gland, psoriasis, sinus, skin, teeth, thyroid, toothache, travel, water retention and watering eyes.
Emotionally, Aquamarine is said to assist with reducing feelings of aggression, anger, crisis, nervousness and phobias, whilst creating feelings of calm, composure, harmony, inspiration, peace and serenity, particularly when coping with change. It is an excellent stone for children who have disassociated from their emotional and/or are acting out aggressively as a result of going through traumatic situations.
Aquamarine is a traditional birthstone for Pisces (19th February - 20th March) and a modern birthstone for Aries (21st March - 19th April) and Gemini (21st May - 20th June).
Aquamarine is a perfect stone for meditating to help you induce revelations and connect with your higher self to bring new insights to use in your day to day life. It may help you to find your spirit guide, too.
Affirmation: My heart and mind are in harmony.
Important to Know
As with all crystals you use regularly, don’t forget to cleanse and recharge it at least once a month.
For crystal healers who use crystals in their work, they should be cleansed after each client to remove any negative energy prior to being used on someone else.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Although the powers of crystals and stones are well documented and have been proven to help bring positivity into people's lives, they are never a substitute for medical advice.
