Crystal Thursday- Aquamarine

Aquamarine is named for its alluring blue green color, aqua marina are Latin/ Italian words for sea water.  The ancient philosopher Plimy says “the lovely aquamarine, which seems to have come from some mermaids treasure house in the depths of a summer sea, has charms to not be denied.”  The Greeks and Romans regarded this stone as helpful to sailors in calming stormy seas. Buts its most popular use throughout antiquity has been that of a powerful oracle crystal, as it was employed as pendulums, and crystal balls.   Aquamarine is a powerful throat chakra stone as it facilitates clear communication, with others as well as with the higher self.  It glows a serene presence and clears up confusion, and inspires orderliness within thoughts, words, and actions.
