General: Aquamarine’s colour comes from minute traces of iron. Said to protect sailors at sea and to guard against drowning, it was the stone of the sea goddess and counteracted the forces of darkness, gaining favour from the spirits of light. A wonderful stone for meditation, Aquamarine shields the aura, invokes high states of consciousness, and encourages service to humanity. With an affinity to sensitive people, it invokes tolerance and supports anyone overwhelmed by responsibility. Breaking self-defeating programs, it leads to dynamic change. Useful for closure on all levels, this stone is helpful in understanding underlying emotional states and interpreting how you feel. Removing extraneous thought, Aquamarine filters information reaching the brain and clarifies perception.

Emotional Healing: Claimed to be beneficial for calmsing perpetually angry or bad-tempered people, mood swings and excessive toddler and teenage tantrums, heals the effects of over-judgmental parents who set impossible standards and panic attacks that linger as guilt and inadequacy in adulthood.
Practical Uses: Since Aquamarine’s power is enhanced by water, Aquamarine elixir (water in which a clean tumblestone of Aquamarine has been soaked for a few hours) is a good gargle for sore throats. It will help prevent motion sickness and can be used in drinks to bring calm and prompt calm words by individuals or a group.
Workplace: Keep or wear Aquamarine that has been soaked weekly overnight in water collected during the waning moon period, to act as a problem solver at work to diminish obstacles or delays imposed by other people’s inefficiency and to deflect unfair criticism and pettiness.2
