This blue-green beryl has an ancient connection with seas and oceans. The name “aquamarine” is derived from the Latin word for seawater (aqua marina, “water of the sea”). This is a stone of the sea and a stone of the mystic.

 

The Greek and Roman myths of mermaids said Aquamarine came from their treasure chests deep in their watery realms. Historically, seafarers and merchants wore aquamarine for protection and for prosperous journeys. It was also worn to prevent or minimize sea sickness.

Used often with the Throat Chakra, Aquamarine can be used to promote verbal self-expression. It is often used to enhance spiritual communication and clear communication blocks. Aquamarine is also used to align all of the chakras and enhance the aura. The metaphysical properties of Aquamarine make it an excellent stone for the spiritual initiate.

Encouraging clarity of thought, Aquamarine can aid in the assimilation of new knowledge, making it a great crystal for students of all kinds. Aquamarine encourages intellectual growth and inner knowledge, opening one up to intuition and the super-conscious mind. Aquamarine is often used to enhance one's intellectual prowess, helping one to think quickly to come up with solutions on the fly.  Many also use Aquamarine to help with reasoning and promote logic. Carrying Aquamarine on one's person can help to remind the individual to be prepared for most any scenario that could be encountered, given the current set of circumstances.
 

As a communication stone, Aquamarine also had a strong mystical history. It was often used for scrying, or divining, either as a crystal ball you would gaze into, or as a pendulum or pointer on a string. Just holding or wearing the stone would help in a search for lost or hidden things. One way to use Aquamarine for scrying was to cast this ancient water stone into a bowl of pure water and then look for messages on the surface.
