As a metaphysical and healing crystal, the aquamarine stone has a fairly long list of positive influences. Each with good historical backing to its many uses. Perhaps the most powerful meanings for aquamarine stone is in its ability to cleanse both the physical and spiritual bodies. Wearing jewelry with one or more aquamarine stones in it can help to clean out the body’s lymph system, align your chakras, remove blockages from the aura and help strengthen the connection between the mind and body.

This cleansing can be increased by wearing a string of aquamarine stones around any point on the body. This can easily and naturally be accomplished by simply wearing a necklace, bracelet or anklet made of aquamarine stone. The idea is to circle a point on the body so as the blood flows through that part of your body, it can bathe in the healing energies the crystal generates.

A second powerful aquamarine stone meaning is found within its ability to improve communication between the user and others. Much like the way it cleanses your personal body allowing all aspects of it to communicate better, it also helps to cleanse and remove barriers in communication between you and other people.

If you are a shy type of person, aquamarine stone can not only reduce your fear of speaking to other, but also help to attract the types of people that would make you feel more comfortable when you speak with them. They would be people you can trust and that show compassion for you. Think how powerful this meaning of aquamarine is as it not only helps to overcome shyness but connects you with the type of people that are best for you personally.

When and if you happen to find yourself in a situation where there is a misunderstanding, an aquamarine stone can help diffuse the situation so any disagreements can be resolved calmly and peacefully, without physical or emotional harm to any persons involved.

The meaning of aquamarine stone I have personally received the most use from is its ability to help us literally feel and see our connection to the people, world and universe around us. It helps strengthen our ability to feel our connection with spirit that runs through all of us. Helps us to understand how, while we are individual beings with our own wants and desires, we are also part of a life force or group energy that acts and reacts between each and every one of us.

This makes it a great gift for someone involved in any type of work dealing with those that are less fortunate because it fosters a desire within us to want to see our communities become the best they can be and this includes helping to lift others out of troubled situations they may find themselves in.

An aquamarine stone makes a great gift for a student, no matter what age level they are because it gives them courage and the ability to excel in learning. It just might help them go on to become one of the intellectual leaders of the world.
