The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning “water of the sea,” and refers to its sparkling ocean-like color. The pale blue, transparent crystal is a member of the Beryl family. Its color, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides within the chemical makeup of the stone. Ancient seer considered it to be under the influence of the moon, an orb exerting very great magnetic influence. Present-day supporters of crystal-gazing suggest that when using an Aquamarine to view coming events, do so when the moon is increasing. The magnetism of the moon on the included iron oxides will strengthen the stone’s forecasting ability.

The human body is made up of seventy percent water, perhaps it comes as no surprise that this ocean bright stone was born to be in our possession. Aquamarine fills us with the elixir of life, washes away residual toxicity, and keeps us feeling squeaky clean and ever ready to let the current carry us wherever we need to go. Let’s take a look at the glorious healing vibes of the pale blue Aquamarine stone.
