Aquamarine Gemstones For Protection From Dangerous Forces and Relief of Stress

 


Visitors: 446

Found primarily in Columbia and Brazil, aquamarine is a lovely blue-green or tourquoise colored gem stone that is commonly used in jewelry. Its name comes from the Latin words for sea and water, due to its color which is reminiscent of the ocean. Aquamarine gemstones have a long history, with them said to first be found in the treasure chests of mermaids, according to ancient legend. Even today, aquamarines are considered the lucky gemstones of sailors at sea, that will protect them from the hazards of life on the ocean. It is also said to protect against unseen forces such as malevolent spirits, the evil eye, and the spread of gossip in your absence.

Like the gemstone amethyst, aquamarine is thought to be a purifying stone that improves circulation and mental awareness. And similar to amazonite it has a soothing effect on the brain and nervous system, relieving emotional stress. The removal of this stress improves personal relationships and physical health in turn.

Amazonite's soothing effect also makes it an ideal stone for meditation, as it reduces external distractions and allows the holder to focus on the internal. Similarly, it inspires creativity and artistic flow, since emotional stress and anxiety can inhibit creative output. And naturally, it reduces fears and increases courage, since most fears are irrational emotional reactions caused by stress and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety are the forces that prevent us from living up to our potential, that inhibit us from being “in the zone" or focussed. Be relieving that emotional stress and physical anxiety, aquamarine gemstones have the potential to greatly improve our quality of life, both personal and professional.
