The Valéntine Earrings
Gold-plated Silver and Aquamarine
Handmade in Italy
Associated with the Throat Chakra, Aquamarine helps overcome the fear of speaking by relaxing oneself to a stage of consciousness in which one is fully aware of truth, wisdom, and feelings, able to articulate thoughts with clarity and conviction. It also allows the user to accurately convey their thoughts in difficult situations. Aquamarine accelerates the intellectual reasoning process and enhances the ability for rapid response. Through learning about oneself and also the physical world, the user’s knowledge can become indomitable. It bestows perseverance, discipline, and light-heartedness. This gemstone encourages the ideal of service to the world and to the development of a humanity attuned to healing. It emits gentle and compassionate energy, promoting moderation and responsibility for one’s actions. By inspiring judgmental people to be more tolerant it can help those overwhelmed by responsibility to find order. A stone of natural justice, Aquamarine utilizes compromise and negotiation and lends quiet courage to clear reasoned words in confrontational situations. As a travel crystal, the greenish-blue aquamarine protects those who journey by sea, alleviating the fear of water and also guarding those involved in any long-haul travel by sea, air, or land. As a love crystal, the pale blue Aquamarine encourages a lover to return, helps two people with different lifestyles to live together in harmony, and reduces the effects of sensitive issues that cause quarrels. It is often given as a love token or eternity ring, and increases fidelity “as long as the waters of the earth flow.”
Warm soapy water is always a safe cleaning method for Aquamarine. Cleaning by ultrasonic and steam cleaners is usually safe unless the stone has liquid inclusions or fractures.
