The aquamarine, a sepirecious variety of beryl, is a pale bule-green color and so has long been associated with the ea and with the element of Water. Sea Witches clease the stone in ocean water at night by the light of the Full Moon. to do the same far from the coast, fill a blue vessel with water, addsea salt and let the stone sit in this mixture overnight.
Aquamarine is used much like the amethyst in soothing and calming emotional problems. It is a stone of peace, joy and happiness, especially in relationships.
