Elongated Aquamarine crystals in perfect arrangements wash calm over you like gentle ocean waves.
These crystalline Aquamarines occur naturally as masses of crystals all grown together, and as isolated, elongated hexagonal crystals among Smoky Quartz, Mica and Molybdenum.
Named for its pale blue-green seawater color, Aquamarine's latin name (aqua marina)literally means sea water. It's a Beryl mineral. (Emerald's the green variety of beryl and morganite's pink.)
With a hardness of 7.5 - 8 Beryls are robust minerals and commonly used as gemstones. Beryl's contain the element Beryllium, which is a light and strong metal with amazing conductivity and a high melting point. It's got many industrial applications and is used in cell phones and aircraft parts.
But well before cell phones, the Romans rocked Aquamarine bling- as beautiful gemstones AND for seasickness prevention / gut health. Well known Roman kings wore custom crowns made of Gold, Pearls and Aquamarine.
And these new Colorado Aquamarine and Smoky Quartz crystals are perfectly suited for today's ethical crystal collecting queens and kings!
They're a new discovery. Mount Antero Colorado's a well known location for Aquamarine. But these blue beauties are a new find from a new location- near Leadville. They were recently discovered by a passionate trio of Colorado diggers, and hand-excavated with care and respect.
They haven't been irradiated or heat-treated (which is a pretty common practice for Aquamarine gemstones). They're all natural - just the way nature created them.
Aquamarine's known as the stone of courage, and invites you to journey into the depths of your inner being. Experience vastness and expansiveness - like the ocean - through stillness and silence. Aquamarine reminds you to access your soul guidance and act on it with courage.
