This piece is a deep blue-green color, with patches of green. The interior is absolutely gemmy with a few misty areas. The pictures just do not do this piece justice. The exterior is covered in intricate etchings with caverns found all around the piece. This is the largest piece we have in our inventory and has the most complex formations. It is a comfortable hold in a cupped palm. The energy is very precise and clear. It sparkles with energy which is very refreshing. Etched crystals contain a storehouse of healing information and energy. They enhance meditation and inner reflection. It is easy to find yourself pondering the wonders of the universe while you explore this crystal.
Solution aquamarine is a rare formation as it forms, like its name implies, in a solution rather than crystallizing in a gas pocket. Water has to be pumped out of the mine to access these crystals. The water creates wild etchings, canals, caves and other unique formations. They have a strong icy energy which is very cooling. It makes me think of a melting ice cube, it works to reduce inflammation no matter where it is in the body. It is awesome at pulling out infections, bacterial or viral. If you are prone to bouts of tonsillitis, bronchitis, or strep throat you'll want to keep one of these nearby. It also helps to soothe irritated eyes, whether through infection or allergies. This aquamarine is strongest at the throat chakra, but influences the heart and third eye as well.
Aquamarine is blue to blue green variety of the beryl family which includes emerald, morganite and heliodor. It forms usually beautiful hexagonal crystals but on rare occasions can be found in craggy formations known as solution aquamarine. Aquamarine owes its beautiful color to traces of iron impurities. Aquamarine emits a gentle and compassionate energy, exhibiting moderation. It is a "stone of courage" aiding one to rapidly respond to the situations at hand. It helps judgmental people to be more tolerant, and can help one who is "swamped" by responsibility to bring order to the process.
