Many works of art bearing the effigy of the heroes and gods of Olympus or great characters in history have been made using aquamarine.

On the throat chakra

The throat chakra represents communication in all its forms: verbal expression, active listening, creativity, respect and kindness. Symbolically, it represents communication with spirit guides and with the afterlife. When in perfect balance, the throat chakra promotes objectivity, sincerity, and clairaudience. On the other hand, when it is blocked, the throat chakra manifests itself in harmful behaviors such as lack of self-confidence, lack of sincerity, excessive shyness or fear of abandonment.

To find balance, you can wear an aquamarine stone in the form of a pendant to always have it near the throat chakra. It will help you speak more confidently, assert yourself in front of others, and have healthy relationships.

On the heart chakra

Aquamarine can also help you unlock your heart chakra. With its gentle and comforting energy, aquamarine promotes love, tenderness and compassion.

Typically, the heart chakra closes following heartbreak, emotional hurt, or trauma.

Wearing an aquamarine can help you work on that particular chakra. When open and balanced, the heart chakra offers you a pleasant feeling of lightness, happiness and unconditional love. This chakra helps you to receive and to give. It helps you express words that are sometimes difficult to pronounce such as “sorry” , “thank you” , or even “I love you” . Located in the middle of the chest and the 7 chakras, the heart chakra can be considered as a link between spiritual energies and material energies, and more broadly, between the earth and the cosmos.

Ultimately, aquamarine is a soft and soothing stone whose virtues are centered on love and communication.
