APPEARANCE & ORIGINS
Aquamarine has been long known as the stone of Mermaids and in Latin Aqua Marinus means ‘Water of the Sea’. Old legends tell of how it changes color to reveal truth or false and it is heralded for its protection of all sea creatures including sailors who travel above the water’s surface. It is a stone of Intellect and is good to have nearby as a reminder to stay focused when learning or acquiring new knowledge. Aquamarine is a rare and therefore expensive crystal and normally comes in small sizes.
Aquamarine identifies with symmetry and balance. It has a hexagonal crystalline structure meaning that atomically its sides are all equal in length. The energy and colour give us the feeling of flow but also structure. It is therefore referred to as a good stone for mediation, clarity and revelation. Many prophets, shamans, healers and mystics have had close affinities with Aquamarine. Aquamarine is a blue variety of Beryl, the deeper and clear the stone the higher the quality and purity.
CHAKRAS & PLACEMENT

Aquamarine is an excellent stone to wear as jewellery, in polished form can be popped in a pocket or pouch to travel with you or in raw form displayed in the home. It is great to put in any spaces that may have people and different energies moving through it frequently. This could on your person or perhaps a workspace or even a study space where you may interact with people via email or social media. The aqua blue color correlates with the throat chakra and therefore is a communication stone.

There are a few things regarding sunlight exposure to keep in mind when placing your crystals in the Home & Workspace. Sun exposure can cause fading to your crystals as well as make them more brittle or extremely hot. Amethyst is known to fade with light. Extended periods of direct sunlight will cause Amethyst to fade. The color change will not effect the energy your crystal omits, however keep an eye on them and if you see some color change that you prefer to avoid place your stone in a place where there is indirect or dappled light.
