Aquamarine is a “Stone of Courage and Protection” and its soothing energy makes it a perfect companion to calm fears and phobias.
Used most often with the Throat Chakra to enhance spiritual communication and to clear communication blocks. Aquamarine helps to promote verbal self-expression.
According to Ancient Egyptians, aquamarine belonged to the sea goddesses. Amulets made of this stone were often worn for pain relief and good health by the people of that era. Archaeologists have found gemstone beads in the mummy pits and sarcophagi of the Ancient Egyptians. The President of Brazil gifted an aquamarine necklace to Queen Elizabeth II back in 1953, and the blue colour so enchanted her that she decided to have a tiara made of these gemstones a few years later.
Just like emerald, aquamarine is a semi-precious type of beryl, with slightly varying colours but relatively consistent transparency. There are bluish-green or turquoise aquamarines as well as pure blue ones. They can have only a hint of colour or be quite dark.
Do not mistake the less costly Sky blue Topaz for Aquamarine.
Unfortunately in some jewellery stores, it is sold as such.
