The aquamarine is a very powerful stone because its meaning is very powerful. It’s called water of the seas. Aqua meaning water, marina meaning sea. This stone is very powerful because it brings together the color blue and green – the vishuddha (throat) and anahata (heart) chakra. With this stone you are increasing your communication from the heart chakra and the throat chakra. It’s like two stones in one.
Sea travelers were having an aquamarine with them to protect them against drowning. If people have had past life experiences where they’re being drowned, an aquamarine can help overcome that fear. A lot of people when they want to support their healing can drink the aquamarine stone in distilled water. It’s very good against stress and is historically related to the mermaids. The mermaids would leave an aquamarine behind them.
If people work with communication from the heart, it will help give them the confidence, support and courage to step into their purpose. Aquamarine also helps to relieve phobias or fear. As a fifth chakra stone, the heart chakra, it balances communicating from the heart and also having the courage to speak and communicating from the heart’s lightness. A lot of people feel relief from heavy issues such as depression. Perhaps because of the connection aquamarine has with the water, it then starts to bring communication and feelings into flow.
