Aquamarine is from the same family as emerald. This crystal evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning ‘water of the sea’, and refers to its sparkling ocean-like colour.
Aquamarine is associated with the birth signs of Aquarius (20 January - 18 February), Gemini (21 May - 20 June) and Scorpio (23 October - 21 November)
