Aquamarine is a stone of the sea as well as a stone of the mystic.
Aquamarine is linked to many zodiac signs. Many associate it with Scorpio, and some also attribute it to Pisces or Aquarius due to it’s watery sea-like quality. For Aquarius the aquamarine promotes friendship and love, while for Pisces it encourages awareness. But it is also the stone of Taurus according to some, due to the fact that aquamarine (and the entire beryl family) are of hexagonal (six-sided) crystalline form, and six is a number belonging to Venus. Others say it is connect with Gemini, because the stone enhances communication. Even Libras get into the mix, since for them, Aquamarine helps to warn them of danger. Aquamarine is the modern birthstone of March but it the traditional birthstone of October.
Aquamarine represents the 5th Chakra, which is the blue throat chakra. The Throat Chakra stimulates the ability to communicate one’s deepest truths. Expressed in Sound, the 5th chakra is all about tuning your creative identity and self-expression through communication. Physically, the 5th Chakra keeps the throat, mouth and thyroid in healthy balance. Spiritually, this communication chakra supports and is strengthened by creativity, truthfulness and exercising your true will. Green is the colour of the 4th or Heart Chakra, so the greener specimens of Aquamarine help you speak or create from the heart.
When you immerse the stone in water, this stone becomes a particularly active charm, and if you work with the stone in this manner in moonlight, it strengthens and opens your third eye. It is said to be the stone of the Sea Witch in that manner. If you are particularly sensitive, you might also want to combine it with smoky quartz to help ground you into the physical and sharpen the images. If you need additional protection tourmalinated quartz will provide added protection.
