General Information & Legends

The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua, meaning water and marinus, meaning of the sea. 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 on to 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 today as a talisman to promote safe travel on the water and to protect against drowning. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Historically, among some traditional practices, 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.
