The word Aquamarine is from the Latin, meaning "water of the sea," because of its glistening ocean like colors.
Aquamarine makes us think of mermaids & the waves of the ocean. The stones beautiful colors also remind us of the many beautiful blue hues of the sea. Folklore tells us tales fishermen & sailors wore these stones for good luck & protection on the water. People believed these stones were the treasure of mermaids. Aquamarine is thought by many to be a stone of youthfulness and happiness. Some believe the stone helps clear channels for honestly & loving communication.
Aquamarine is associated with the Throat chakra, believed to help the owner overcome the fear of speaking, whether to small groups or when making large presentations. It is said to help relax the speaker and enable better articulation.
Is all that true?
I have researched these stones, and to the best of my ability share with you what I believe to be the most accurate information. We can verify much of the science such as chemical make-ups, interactions, and practical uses, but beyond that I can only share the recorded history regarding believed spiritual attributes associated with the stones.
I believe humans are drawn to rocks, crystals and gemstones because they are made up of some of the very same minerals that are in our own bodies. They are elemental, naturally beautiful and we connect with them on some basic level, even if that level is just that we think they're gorgeous and unique. They have been incorporated into every culture and civilization throughout the earth's history.
Personally, I love learning the history of these stones, how they were used, what people believed they could do, and where they were found in the world. I think their crystalline structures, chemical make-ups, and how they are formed within the earth is truly magical, but beyond that I just love looking at them and have a hunch you do too. So let's just enjoy them, don't over think it.
