Aquamarine is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust, and letting go. Its name comes from the Latin aqua Marinus, meaning "water of the sea," and refers to its sparkling ocean-like color. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness, and protection.
It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Today, it protects all who travel by, over, or near water, and opens the channels of clear and heartfelt communication.
