This is a very beautiful piece of aquamarine. The clarity is beautiful as are the etchings.
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.
