Magical/Ritual Lore: The aquamarine is the stone of the sea-goddesses of past times.
Beads of aquamarine were found in ancient Egyptian mummy pits.
Magical Uses : The aquamarine, a semiprecious variety of beryl, is a pale bluegreen color and so has long been associated with the sea and with the element of Water. Sea Witches cleanse 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, add sea saltand let the stone sit in this mixture overnight. In magic this beautiful stone is worn or carried to enhance the utilization of psychic powers. Holding a crystal of the stone, or wearing a faceted aquamarine around the neck reduces our conscious mind's hold on the psychic mind and allows the ever-present psychic impulses to be heard and to enter our consciousness.
