AQUAMARINE STONE | valerie lavigne life

“the treasure of mermaids”

this crystal awakens 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

it is considered the stone of eternal youth and happiness

aquamarine protects all who travel by, over, or near water bringing them good luck, fearlessness and protection

it also opens up channels of clear and heartfelt communication
