Aquamarine Stone Meaning, Benefits and Healing Properties

Aquamarine is a stone of courage. Its calming energies reduce stress and quite the mind. It harmonizes its surroundings and protects against pollutants. In ancient times it was believed to counteract the forces of darkness. It was carried by sailors as a talisman against drowning.

Aquamarine is a green-blue gemstone that comes from the mineral beryl, which can be found in many places around the world. Aquamarine is the most popular form of beryl and is most often mined in Brazil, India, United States, Madagascar, Nigeria and Zambia.

The word "aquamarine" means "sea water," which is how this stone got its name. It's thought to be named after the Latin word for water - aqua - as well as the Latin word for sea - mare. The color blue was also closely associated with water in ancient times, so aquamarine's name makes sense when you consider this.

Meaning of Aquamarine

The Aquamarine stone is a symbol of purity and innocence. This stone is associated with the Virgin Mary and Saint Elizabeth, who are often depicted holding this gem.

Aquamarine was also used by sailors to protect them from drowning at sea, which led to it being known as "The Sea Water Stone." In the Middle Ages, sailors believed that aquamarine would protect them from drowning and bring them luck on their journeys. It was also used to ward off evil spirits, which made it an excellent stone for sailors to wear or carry with them when they set sail.

In ancient China, Aquamarine was considered one of the luckiest stones you could wear due to its connection with water (and water being essential for life). It was thought that wearing aquamarine would help protect you from drowning or other accidents related to water such as stormy weather conditions at sea. This belief continued into modern times where some people still wear aquamarine as an amulet against drowning or drowning-related accidents while swimming or boating on lakes or rivers during hot summer months when temperatures are very high.
