Anyone who has worked with this beautiful stone knows all too well the clear, concise clarity that is brought forward.
Aquamarine is lovely not only in its physical appearance but it’s spiritual and healing attributes as well.
The crystalline beauty of the blue green gemstone aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
Aquamarine is a form of beryl and the colors remind us of water, clear blue lakes and green blue oceans. Indeed, Aquamarine literally means sea water and is associated with all things relevant to water and oceans.
Favored by merfolk and Neptune/Poseidon alike, aquamarine brought safety and protection to all creatures of the sea. Even sailors carried amulets hung around their neck to protect them from storms and drowning.
To wear aquamarine is to be in touch with the water element of yin, the emotions, spirituality and the deep mysteries of the psyche.
It invokes within us a deep need to be of service to the world and do so fairly.
Under the rule of Aquarius, the service provided by those who carry this stone may be known for unconventionality. This makes it a powerful stone for all metaphysical concepts, integrative medicine and spiritual evolution.
Aquamarine works synergistically with the Star card in tarot and brings revolutionary solutions to old problems, leading us forward with justice and clarity.
Aquamarine rules negotiation, diplomacy and compromise, thus making it a perfect gem to use in all matters dealing with balance in love. It can help us compromise when it is necessary for a partner’s need to trump our wants.
Alignment with a partner is a challenging, delicate balance that awakens the ego and must be dealt with calmly and clearly. It is easy to become confused and for negativity to take over.
Aquamarine greatly eases these emotional tidal waves, allowing us to sail on smoother water.
Metaphysically, the blue green colors bring a sense of serenity and peace and can be used with all manner of emotional healing. It helps us attain balance within ourselves, allowing for greater balance out into the world and to leave the past behind.
Ancient lore tells us that to hold an aquamarine allows us to breathe under water and to magically grow gills.
If you or your clients are struggling with deep emotions and are seeking balance aquamarine can be used in many ways.
The most common way is to carry an aquamarine in your pocket or amulet pouch around your neck. They are often set into rings, bracelets, earrings, broaches and necklaces to be worn as jewelry
A wand can be crafted with aquamarine at the tip instead of quartz, useful in balancing emotions.
Another interesting way to work with aquamarine is to make a gemstone elixir. This is done by placing an aquamarine in a glass of distilled or spring water, covering it and setting in in moonlight during the full moon.
Water and gem will integrate and be charged by mother moon. Conversely, you can do with sunlight to create a solar elixir or you can charge your elixir with both.
Elixirs can be used to anoint yourself, sacred tools or anything else you choose. A few drops can be added to tea or to your bath. Let your intuitive self guide you as how to best connect.
Aquamarine is also associated with Jonquils, Forget- me- Nots and with the homeopathic cells salt Natrum Muratricum.
However you connect with aquamarine you are certain to benefit from the beauty, balance and healing attributes of this gracious gemstone.
