September 2021 Stone of the Month - Aquamarine
Aquamarine is the perfect stone to transition from the fiery summer months into calm, peaceful waters. It is the stone of courage, peace, and tranquility. It soothes fears, helps to reduce stress and quiets the mind. This is a great stone to keep on hand when you need to make big decisions as it clears any confusion you may have, sharpens intellect, and clarifies your perception so you can come from a wholesome place.
Aquamarine works with the 3rd Eye chakra, sharpening intuition and increasing clairvoyance. However, it also opens the flow between the heart and throat chakras, so that you can speak your truth calmly and confidently from the inner knowing of your heart. This stone assists with constructive communication and helps you to overcome judgementalism. Since it works strongly with the throat chakra, it is helpful for sore throats, swollen glands, and thyroid problems.
Wear Aquamarine as a necklace, pendant, or earrings, to connect with the upper chakras and open them up. Of course, it makes for beautiful jewelry of any kind and is also perfect to add to your office and/or home space to invite in more calm and welcome more peaceful, loving conversation.
The largest deposits of Aquamarine are found in Brazil. It is also sourced in Afghanistan, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Tanzania, and Zambia.
