Aquamarine is a calming stone that reduces stress, quietens the mind, removing extraneous thought, and brings courage. It filters information reaching the brain and clarifies perception, sharpens the intellect and clears up confusion. It harmonizes its surroundings and protects against pollutants. Having an affinity with sensitive people, it supports anyone overwhelmed by responsibility and encourages taking responsibility for yourself. This stone brings understanding of underlying emotional states, soothes fears, increases sensitivity, breaks old, self-defeating programs and creates a personality that is upright, persistent and dynamic. It overcomes judgement, invokes tolerance and clears blocked communication, aiding self-expression.
Aquamarine is useful for closure on all levels. It sharpens intuition, opens clairvoyance and is a wonderful stone for meditation, invoking high states of consciousness and spiritual awareness and encouraging service to humanity. Aquamarine shields the aura, aligns the chakras, clearing the throat chakra and bringing communication from a higher plane, and aligns the physical and spiritual bodies. In ancient times, Aquamarine was believed to counteract the forces of darkness and procure favour from the spirits of light. It was carried by sailors as a talisman against drowning.
