Merry Christmas in Advance to all of You !!!
What Are You Getting Your Girls This Christmas? Get Some Ideas
With Christmas only months away, most people are busy preparing for the holiday season. Most of us wait on the Black Friday sale to grab our year’s most extravagant purchases, which includes gifts for ourselves and friends and families. If you, like everyone else, are waiting for the year’s biggest shopping event you could use some gift ideas. When it comes to Christmas gifts to family and close friends, most people think big. Make use of your Christmas bonus and the holiday mood to buy some exclusive gifts this Christmas for the people you care for.
Picking gifts is no mean feat, particularly when your mind is either vacant or scrambled with ideas. When shopping, it is advisable to focus on one thing to arrive at a practical purchase decision. So, without further ado, let’s go over the options. When you are thinking to gift something big this time, then think jewellery, because that’s one of the very few things that warranty happiness. Besides, if you are going to pay a handsome price, better make it count. Sure, the choices in jewellery often exceed the demand, but with some clues and ideas, you are all set to make the right pick at a reasonable expense.
For Your Mother
Choices are aplenty for those looking to buy a piece of bauble for their mother, and contrary to popular notion, it does not involve checking with your mother what she likes. Why ruin the surprise when you can figure it out by yourself?
For her, you need to focus on items for a particular age group. You may not have thought this, but somewhere at the back of your mind, you know what her taste in jewellery is like. Try to remember if her jewelleries are mostly petite and delicate or big and bold.
If she is a ring person, a promise ring would be a great way to express your love and gratitude. If she’s into necklaces, a pendant makes a lovely surprise. If your mother is middle aged or above, then look in solitaires. Pendants that use a single diamond, pearl or emerald makes a fitting pick for her. It should at least be a few centimetres in diameter, or in other words, substantially sized, if nothing over the top.
If pendants sound too complicated, then get her a pair of classic diamond ear studs. These pieces are a joy to own, and your mother will love them at the very first glance. Cluster studs are smaller in price while solitaires are pricey.
For a Little Sister
For your little sister, a promise ring is the best Christmas gift ever. A promise ring is a symbolic expression of love and affection, and an unspoken commitment to the relationship. It’s a great way of telling that you would be around when she needs you.
Thanks to the makers, promise rings of countless styles and designs have landed in the stores in the past few years. They have cute gem rings, charm shaped and even plain bands for girls of all ages. Depending on her age and style, you can find something that is both symbolic and fancy. Fancy is important, because girls love fancy.
A bracelet is another suggestion, but there is a price alert there. If you are comfortable spending bigger than a ring, then a bracelet is the next best choice. Layered bangles, solitaire bangles and skinny bracelets are the top choices in the market. Don’t worry about the size because most of them come in one size or with size adjustable feature.
Tennis bracelets are wildly popular among young girls, if you are looking for something that’s not too flashy, but definitely sophisticate. These pieces are bands for arms, designed with gems studded on skinny chains.
For Your Significant Other
For your wife, girlfriend or fiancé, the choices of jewelleries is practically never ending. Most stores are heavily stocked in the romantic and nuptial sections, which makes it easy for couples to find something that catches their fancy quite easily.
A ring would be a classic gesture of romantic love, and that works great for a wife. Diamond solitaires, eternity rings and even three-stone rings are great gifts to wives on any occasion. It revitalizes the spark in marriages through the expression of love and admiration. In fact, to make it really special for her. Go custom, and design a ring with your choice of design, metal and gems to create something original. She’ll love it, without a doubt.
For a fiancé or girlfriend, however, you have to think differently. Rings won’t work for obvious reasons. Earrings however make great Christmas gifts. A pair of solitaire ear studs would be the first suggestion right off the top of my head, but she likes dressy things, get a set of dazzling danglers. Laced with shimmering diamonds, these pieces are a feast for the eyes. No need to get stressed on the price as long as you limit yourself to cluster diamond pieces. They look expensive, but don’t cost as much.
For some reason, if you are thinking of something more than the usual rings and earrings, then go for a necklace. The choices here are diverse, and the priced flourish. If you are thinking pendants, no need to be warned though, but if you happen to slip into serious diamond necklaces, you’ll probably have to cough up a few thousands extra, but your gift will be guaranteed the best she’d receive this Christmas. Birthstone necklaces are petite and charming. Solitaire necklaces are classy and expensive. Cluster necklaces are affordable, and spectacular. Mangal sutras and neck chains display advanced craftsmanship, but for all they cost, they are worth every dime.
For a Friend for LifeFor a friend you have known all your life, or someone who has become a close confidante in a very short time, nothing short of a diamond jewellery is worth the chemistry. Cluster studs or pendants are two of the choicest picks that she’d like and you’d be able to afford without stretching your budget.

Rubies have ruled the hearts of kings and queens through centuries. Occupying a permanent place in jewellery, these bright shiny red stones have stood the test of time unlike most of its kind. One of the most valuable gems available to mankind, this fiery red stone is loved for its vibrant and warm tone and overflowing lustre. Although the stories around the origin of rubies is quite hazed due to lack of records, it is said that this brilliant red stone was first found in India where it was named “Ratnaraj”, Sanskrit for “the King of Gems”. Back in the days, rubies were used to decorate palaces and mansions and often, to welcome a Royal Guest. Now permanently posited in jewellery, the rubies that are mined today are mostly taken in to decorate ornaments.
The Cs of Ruby Grades
Rubies are graded by the parameters of colour, clarity and carat.
Colour in rubies is the deciding factor. Although rubies naturally occur in all shades starting with red to dark pink, not all of them is top-grade. Only those occurring in the medium to medium dark red bracket are the finest. Gems from this section are often referred to as “pigeon blood” red rubies. Those at the bottom of the bracket are passed on as pink sapphires because of their light hue and translucence.
There is nothing as an inclusion-free ruby and that fact prompts the graders to focus more on the colour than the clarity of the stones. Even the signature red rubies have slight inclusions. However, the prices peak for those with fewer inclusions while it takes a dip for stones with more flaws. Almost all inclusions in rubies are visible to naked eyes. So, under bright light, it’s never really hard to make out the clarity of a ruby.
Aside, colour saturation and clarity, the third aspect of a ruby that is directly proportional to its value is the carat. The larger a ruby is, the steeper it is priced. However, since the pricing is largely presided by the quality of the stone, a large stone of poor grade can cost much lesser than a drop-size top-quality ruby.
Rubies Work Great With
The colour schemes in jewellery have taken an interesting spin at this point. Designers are no longer unconfident about bringing together gems of opposing or similar colours. It’s not so much about which shades match than which look great together. So, as long as the colours are not fighting one another for the first place, it’s good to go. With rubies, almost any gem can work, provided the jeweller knows how to bring it together.
The marriage of rubies with diamonds is a union destined for eternity. The two have come together often and still do gracing each other with their brilliance and lustre.
Rubies with emeralds seem to be the newest obsession of the masses. The two balance each other out, all the while sparking a vibrant combination of totally dichotomous shades. If you are not all for opposite colours, then try putting your ruby with a bright citrine. Orange and red occupy adjacent houses in the colour wheel. Being analogous, they blend as well as complement one another.
Rubies with blue sapphire are another striking combination. The combination may at first sound a bit tricky because they don’t really balance one another, but if one is used to accent the other, the combination will look every bit wonderful as any.
Pink sapphires with rubies makes the perfect pair for monochromatic jewellery where the designers tries to weave in gems of similar colour, but different shades.
Settings That Make a Ruby Look Perfect
Frankly, the setting of a stone is determined by two things, first its cut and second, its carat. Getting past the first point in this case, what settings are great for rubies, generally speaking? To answer that, it is important to understand the general rule that applies to gemstones and their settings. The larger your stone is, the lesser your setting options get.
If you want your thumb-size ruby to blossom brightly, then a prong setting is what you should think. The reason why prong setting is the best fit for a chunky ruby is because its elevation offers the best possible visibility for the stone. The metal claws of a prong setting are great in more than just one way. The clips are slim and therefore, they hardly get in the way of the gem. Secondly, a prong setting is a very secure setting for a large stone. It hardly ever fails to keep the stone secure as it passes hands.
Of course a prong setting is not the only option you have. A bezel setting is a great fit for a large size ruby too. A bezel is a metal rim that contours the gem from around holding it tightly from all sides. However, a bezel setting is also a popular option for small rubies that are cut to have a spread-off table. Since the metal bracket hugs the stone from all sides, it masks the bottom part of the stone. So, there is a great choice is setting for small and medium sized rubies with large tables.
If you have a handful of smaller stones that you want to set in your ornament, then you need to choose between pave, channel and invisible settings. A pave setting, as the name suggests, is essentially how stones in pavements are cobbled together in a flat overlay. Channel setting is often considered a wise pick for small rubies because the grooves of the setting are firm to hold small stones. However, if you are not a fan of the metal perimeters dividing the stones apart, then choose an invisible style of setting for your rubies. In an invisible setting, the rubies are aligned one after the other with no visible barriers in between thus appearing like a long vibrant line of shiny red spearing over the surface.

I do not consider it too negative to say that one must actually not sell the old gold. Old gold is collected from many years by most of us and it is actually like a treasure. Value of gold has increased over the years as we all know, I will not be going into figures as you can always search them up online. But having a gold in your locker may give you the power that you have the back up for your dreams to pursue. It is the hidden power which is actually your wealth over the period.
Sometimes we have the reason to sell it due to some circumstances about our current situation which is completely okay and that is the reason to own such gold. But I strongly recommend to assess the situation about your circumstances. Sometimes people just sell it that it came to them in heritance and they have not spend or actually invested anything in it. They think that all that came from it is profit. Also the other situation is they bought it for X amount and now they are getting some percentage on top of it. They will sell it for the reason that they have earned X amount on top of the investment. This is completely right but now it is very important to assess where the money is going, is it going to any other investment or is being spent. Most cases the money is going for gratification. One must not spend the investment and old gold weather inherited or bought by yourself long time back is the investment and nothing else.
Most fine jewellery you buy from various sources is always something that gives you more return that anything else. I especially compare to extra clothes you buy, gazettes that you buy, high end holidays that you spend for etc. You normally do not get much high return or sometimes zero on the most of this. They are very important to our daily life but assessing the situation that how much do we spend compared to investment is very important.
The investment in gold or any other investment is the confidence - Please read this story
Suddenly an old man appeared before him.
“I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.
After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said,
“I believe I can help you.”
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying,
“Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check/cheque for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!
“I can erase my money worries in an instant!”
He realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check.
At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried.
“I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”
And she led the old man away by the arm.
The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.
Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.

This is not the investment advise but it is all about stopping gratification and being more wise than what we are and how we spend. You are solely responsible for all your decision.

Emerald, the Gem That Mirrors the Colour of Nature
Emerald, the birthstone of May is a luminous gem that occurs in different shades of green. The most expensive variety of beryl, emerald is one of the three most precious colour stones, the other two being sapphires and rubies.
Colour and Clarity
In gems, colours are a culmination of three individual factors, namely, tone, hue and saturation. Though they may seem to be the one and same, they are different. The natural hues that emerald bear are yellow to green to blue. In all the cases, green is the primary colour, which explains why all emeralds appear green. That makes the colours blue and yellow secondary hues in emerald. As for its tone, the gem occurs in light, medium and dark tones. Depending on that, the tone of the green deepens or lightens. All emeralds between medium and dark tones are categorically called emeralds. Those that bear light tones are segregated as green beryl. On a scale where 0% is colourless and 100% is fully opaque black, most emerald score about 75% which is fairly dark and hardly light. Gemmologists call an emerald quality when it is well saturated and has a vivid bright hue.
Clarity in emeralds is determined by two factors chiefly, inclusions and fissure. The presence or absence of either or both tells how high or low a stone is in the clarity scale. Interestingly, the grading is not done through a loupe examination, which, for diamond is a 10X magnification. Instead, emeralds are studied by eye and graded accordingly. Emeralds with no visible inclusions are rated flawless, while those having fissures and inclusions are graded accordingly. One that is not so commonly known about emerald is that almost all stones from Flawless to low grade are treated for enhanced clarity. All eye-clean emeralds bear a vivid green as their primary colour and yellow and blue as secondary which doesn’t exceed 15%. These are the stones that are priced highest.
Though emeralds, like diamonds are shaped into different cuts, cabochon is a common form, mostly inspired by the irregular shape of the stone, as commonly seen in emerald earrings and emerald necklaces. The most common cuts in emerald are oval, rectangle and emerald.
Three Highlights of Emeralds
Buyers often raise questions on why emerald is so high in demand in the market. The high sales of emerald jewelleries at AGN Sons is testimony to that record. To answer that question, emerald is one of the most precious 9 gems known to men. Though emeralds hardly occur in the grade as a flawless diamond does, its imperfections are its strengths.
· Emeralds have 3 phase inclusions which means, the stones have impurities like fluid, rock salt and even gas bubbles, all of which contribute to the dark, arcane beauty of the stone.
· As mentioned above, emeralds occur in non-uniform shapes in the nature. The best of these stones form hexagonal crystals, most of which a gorgeous flat top. The stones occur in hexagonal columns of sage green that look exceedingly beautiful in their rough forms. That is precisely why many jewelleries use cabochon emeralds instead of cut ones.
· There are some folklore that swirl around emeralds making it one of the most interesting gems found in the planet. It is said that the Egyptians were the first to stumble upon an emerald mine. This discovery predates most civilizations. It is said to have happened as early as in 3500 BC. Considering that story as a framework of fact, these gems are very old and have been a part of our civilization for many thousand years.
Astrological Merits of Emerald
In astrology, emerald is believed to have many benefits. The birthstone of May is not just the most aesthetically brilliant choice one has, next to diamonds, but is also a reserve of goodness. An emerald benefits its wearers in some or all of the following ways:
· Emeralds are a natural enhancer of intelligence and intellect. Dominated by the planet of Mercury, this stone balances out perspectives, brings deeper understanding and help develop a stronger command over subjects of study.
· In intellect, emeralds exert a spurt that piques ones creativity, artistry and even lingual abilities. Wearing emerald has helped many ideate and innovate.
· A less known merit of emerald is communicative improvement. Those with impeded communicative skills find themselves able to make clearer and better communication with others. Emerald helps its wearer to express themselves more lucidly and confidently without any external aid.
· Medical astrology speaks of a bunch of benefits of emerald. The stones is said to have curative power in treating respiratory difficulties, allergies and even nervous disorders. Those with a case of stutter have been able to overcome their difficulties with the help of emerald.
· Psychologically, emeralds are therapeutic. It helps in better concentration and stronger focus. It brings stability in the character of people with low level of concentration.
· Emerald being a stone of Mercury helps its wearers gain fame and fortune through work. People have experienced mercurial ascents in their lives following wearing emeralds.
· Emerald is immensely detoxifying when it comes to cleansing of emotional toxicity. It removes all emotional slug left from previous relationships whilst preparing the mind and the heart to accept new things. It helps heal scars and expunges delusional ideas.
· The stone is particularly very helpful in bringing about remarkable progression in the professional lives of physicists, astrologers, healers and medical practitioners.
Lore and Legends
Like all gemstones that have been labelled precious, emeralds too have tons of lores and legends that thicken the mysticism surrounding the stone. The ancient Greeks named it “smaragdus” which means green in their tongue. There is a story behind that. Emerald was then used by early apothecaries to cure optical conditions. According to the early lapidaries, the soft, green shade of emeralds is the best comforter for weary eyes. Though that part of the theory has been retained by science, emeralds having any therapeutic effect for eyes has been nullified. According to myths, emerald is one among the four gems that God gave to the biblical king Solomon to have power over his creations.

On Aquamarine, the Colour-of-Sea Gem
Aquamarine, the birthstone for the month of March is a pretty blue beryl that matches in colour with no other gem known to us. The colour of aquamarine reflects the shade of the sea in which the sage of nature merges with the azure of ocean to create a sprightly in-between hue.
Etymologically, Aquamarine is a Latin word for seawater. Sailors chant the word to keep the waves calm during their journey across oceans. When separated, the name aqua and marine both refer to sea. Aquamarine, as we know it, is a namesake of the ocean, what with its colour invoking a certain quiet and calmness. Brazil is the largest accounted producer of aquamarine though large quantities of the gem also come from Madagascar, Nigeria, Zambia, Mozambique and Pakistan.
History and Lore
There is no factual evidence surrounding the first aquamarine that came to us. However, legends have it that the stone was a talisman for sailors in their voyages. The blue-green tone of the stone is known to cool the temper of everything from individuals to things in nature.
Mention of aquamarine in ancient texts and scriptures lends evidence to its presence in those times. It was believed in the Middle Ages that aquamarine could neutralize poisons. Romans ventured out to befriend their enemies with their hopes cast on an aquamarine frog jewellery.
In other civilizations, the gifts of aquamarine were believed to touch hearts and mind. Parents and relatives blessed newlyweds with aquamarine bridalsets so that their bond lasted lifelong. Some even believed that the gem had the power to reawaken love in people.
Almost all the ancient civilizations in the world have sung praises of aquamarine and its supposed properties. The Sumerians, Hebrews and Egyptians believed that the stone could win battles for kingdoms engaged in wars. They sent their warriors to battles wearing aquamarine jewels for assured victory. Whether or not it helped the knights and foot soldiers in any way other than giving them hope is unknown.
Apothecaries and alchemists used aquamarine dust to whip up concoctions to cure infections and poisoning. Aquamarine was particularly very helpful in the treatment of eye disorders.
On a more moderate mood, astrologers and orb gazers believed the stone to be the key to restore mental health and wellness. It was considered as an aid for meditation, owing to the cool blue shade of the stone that evokes inner peace and tranquillity. In the same line of thought, aquamarine was believed to be the aligner of the physical and the spiritual. The stone was recommended to all suffering from spiritual disorientation or feeling out of harmony.
Aquamarines were not traditionally used as amulets or talismans. That would be an insult to the beauty of the stone. Instead, aquamarinejewelleries were worn to aid the spiritual wellbeing of the wearers.
Some of these faiths and lore have been passed on to this urban era. People still wear the stone as protection before litigation and other disputes. The stone is believed to pace up thinking and improve intellect.
A Look up Close
Aquamarine is a variety of mineral beryl. It comes in shades greenish blue to all blue. Aquamarines that appear more bluish than greenish is mostly affected by heat treatment.
The colour of the stone is arguably its best feature. It is rare how blue and green infuse together in the stone to create an entire new shade with the best of both. The temper of the colour in an aquamarine stone is very light and that, with its high reflectivity creates a brilliance that is not normally seen in other stones. Those with a little yellowish inclusion look brighter with the mild fire of the colour. The gentle blue shade coupled with the translucence of the stones lends the stone a vitreous lustre. If you view the stone under a dichroscope, you will see that the stone looks strikingly close to colourless. The blue in the stone is in fact scattered towards the vertexes of the crystals where it grows strong. Thusly, the halo from the corner colours the entire stone.
Crystals of aquamarine as found in nature are mostly well-formed and clean. That makes cutting and polishing unnecessary for mineral specimen collectors. Aquamarine crystals are normally, prismatic, six-sided and are about a foot long. The sizeable crystals make it easier for lapidaries to cur and polish them in large carats. Aquamarine statement pieces are spectacular to look at.
The beauty of an aquamarine stone lies in the fact that it looks perfect in all designs and settings. The stone makes a perfect addition to silver and platinum as well as gold and titanium. There is barely ever any design or metal that an aquamarine can go wrong with.
The best grade stones have no yellow in them, while the included varieties have only a touch of yellow which only brightens up the tone further.
Like all other gemstones, aquamarine is graded by the four standard earmarks of Colour, Cut, Clarity and Carat. They are as discussed below:
· Colour: Starting with colour, the stone has a pretty narrow colour range. That is mostly because beryl on the greener side is emerald. So, this colour-of-the-sea stone range in colour between greenish blue to blue. Aquamarine, by general standard, is the rarest and most valuable in dark blue shade. Anything between light to intense greenish blue is also graded high in the scale, depending upon the tone of the colour. However, the grade goes up with the intensity of the blue colour content of the stone. But, you should be aware that most blue aquamarines found in the market are heat treated and, in all likelihood, are not naturally so blue. The larger stones over the weight of 5 carats are naturally saturated and hence, looks bluer than smaller stones.
· Clarity: Most aquamarines are clear enough to pass the naked-eye test. But, as we all know, that hardly means that the stones are free of inclusions. Instead, some beryl crystals have a moderate level of liquid inclusions. The market however does not scrutinize too intricately in the inclusions as they do for diamonds. In fact, the stones are graded based on their clarity to expert eyes. The aquamarines that contain inclusions visible to the eye are used as beads or made into carvings and cabochons. Low grade aquamarines have parallel inclusions that cannot be easily ignored. These liquid-filled or hollow inclusions run parallel along the stones.
· Cut: The beauty of aquamarine crystals is that it can be shaped as one likes. So, aquamarines are available in almost as gemstone cuts known so far. However, of all cuts, oval and round brilliant cuts are more common than others. That’s because in oval and round cuts, the brilliance of the stone manifests best. Designers and artists prefer working with aquamarine as compared to other varieties of beryl because of the transparency and hardness of the stone. Because it is tough, it can be easily chipped into any cut without much getting wasted. Aquamarine is often the chosen stone for new and fancy cuts for concept jewelleries. The reason why aquamarine makes a fitting stone for all cuts is because it is pleochroic. As mentioned before, the colour of aquamarine is concentrated around the corners and that makes the colour directional. That makes aquamarine nearly colourless with strong blue vertexes. Though that should technically make cutting a challenge, it works in favour of the carvers. The colours correspond with the orientations of the cut making every piece retain most of the colour and weight. The table of the stones are aligned parallel along the height or length of the rough crystal.
· Carat: Aquamarine stones are cut and shaped to sizes really small to large. Some stones are as large as 100 lbs while the smallest ones resemble the size of a sand bead. However, though smaller stones find an easy entry into jewellery designs, larger rocks are difficult to accommodate. Some collectors find it consolatory to own the stones without any metallic framing, others like to wear them in gold and platinum. For them, more reasonably sized aquamarines are produced to set in aquamarine necklaces and bracelets. Quite naturally, the very large stones lose some bidders to the affordable equivalents. Aquamarines over 25 carats are priced more reasonably than those below the mark. The largest Aquamarine mined so far is a Brazilian crystal which was recorded to be 244 lbs. This was in 1910.
A cloud of belief surrounds this stones in the sphere of astrology. Practitioners believe the stone to have powers and capabilities beyond human logic and rationale. Though health care professionals may not confirm these qualities of the stone, nor may gemologists, but the stone has known to worked wonders for its wearers in many occasions. Here are some of the uses of Aquamarine as assumed in astrology.
Physical Healer: Aquamarine is said to have intrinsic association with our respiratory system. It is the stone of breathing and is therefore known to cure sinus problems, frequent cold and cough, hay fever and even some allergies. The stone is recommended to those who suffer from bronchial conditions and frequent cold. In addition to this, aquamarine is also a gemstone that has certain cooling properties. Thus, it is considered effective in treating infections, sore throat, strep throat and such problems. It is known to normalise the functions of pituitary glands, thyroid glands, hormones, etc.
Emotional Healer: Aquamarine is the stone of water and that makes it a powerful cleanser of emotions. It eliminates negative thoughts and ambitions and replace them with positive thoughts and calmness. It opens up communication and invigorates reasoning. It propels the mind forward towards positive and productive thinking. But above all, it balances all the emotions on an even keel, particularly controlling anger, fear and anxiety. The stone is of great help for those going through changes in life. It helps reduce resistance and overcome fear and anxiety that come with transition.
Balancing Energy: Aquamarine radiates many different kinds of energies, one of which initiates the healing of chakra. The stone stimulates energy that surges from the heart and runs through the throat to the base of the spine. The exercise is known to open up all channels of communication with one’s self helping people to accept and absorb the truth within.
Spiritual Connector: Aquamarine is known to help attain spirituality, and more commonly reawaken the spiritual energy in its wearers. It brings vitality to life by nourishing the spirit within and reversing emotional numbness. It helps one to connect with their spiritual self and with that grow the power of compassion. It also lend people the courage to go forth into the unknown in search of spiritual fulfilment.
Divination and Meditation Aide: The colour of stone calms minds almost instantly. That is particularly why the stone has proven to be an excellent aid for meditation. It helps awaken the paranormal abilities in a person that meditation aims. It helps the wearers realize a state of complete calmness inside the mind and experience revelations in life. Some traditions even claim that the stone has ability to show a wearer his guardian angels through meditation. In divination, an aquamarine has multiple interpretation. Dreaming of the stone means you are likely to make new friends. The subject also interprets the meaning of the name as the indication to go forth with what you have than to wait for what you want.
Colour Energy: The colour of aquamarine has a certain energy too. The pale blue of the stone resembles the receding winter sky. So, aquamarine engagement rings indicate the beginning of a journey, a search for your own emotions and a reflection upon one’s true self. It relaxes the mind and conditions it to accept things easily without resistance. It helps develop patience and stimulates the will to reconcile differences or even go out and seek forgiveness from those one has wronged. The colour blue is also very effective in dealing with grief and letting go of what was.
