A new month has arrived and that means it’s time to discuss another birthstone! This month is all about the lovely aquamarine. This cool gem holds plenty of unique properties that we think you may like to know. Let’s swim into the world of the aquamarine!
The name aquamarine is derived from not one, but two Latin words – aqua, meaning “water” and marina, meaning “of the sea.” This is very fitting, given the gem’s beautiful, blue hue like the sea.
Speaking of color, this stone is the green-blue to blue variety of the mineral beryl. Typically, the aquamarine is a light pastel greenish-blue. Stones that appear a little more on the bluer side are heat treated to achieve that slightly darker shade. No matter the hue, this gem sure is a stunner!
Continuing with the theme of the sea, it was believed that the aquamarine was once a treasure of the mermaids. For the folks above water, this gem was used as a talisman of good luck, protection, and fearlessness. Fast forward to the present, the aquamarine protects all who travel by, over, or near water. Everything will be smooth sailing with this gem in your possession!
The healing properties of the aquamarine are sure to bring you relief! This gem will allow your deepest and heartfelt truth to be communicated. No more having to keep things inside, let it all out and let your feelings be known! The aquamarine also emits a compassionate and gentle energy that promotes moderation and responsibility for your actions. This helps with expressing your heartfelt truth so that you stay composed in any situation. It will allow you to step in someone else’s shoes and see things from their perspective.
Another great thing about this gorgeous gem is that it calms, soothes, cleanses you! If you are feeling anxious, wearing a piece of aquamarine jewelry will make your worries fade away and you will find order. Having trouble letting go of the past or current pressing matters in your life? This gem will reassure you that everything will be alright and that it is okay to step away from things that no longer serve you. It’s your time to shine!
Given that you are a creative individual, the aquamarine will give your creativity a boost and you will start to see your ideas come to life! This gem will allow you to maintain your focus, which will lead you to check things off your list seamlessly.
Aquamarine is the perfect stone for meditation and centering yourself. This gem will put you at ease and allow you to connect with your higher self! Bring on the good vibes!
