Like the gem stone amethyst, aquamarine is thought to be a purifying stone that improves circulation and mental awareness. And similar to amazonite it has a soothing effect on the brain and nervous system, relieving emotional stress. The removal of this stress improves personal relationships and physical health in turn.

Amazonite's soothing effect also makes it an ideal stone for meditation, as it reduces external distractions and allows the holder to focus on the internal.

By relieving that emotional stress and physical anxiety, aquamarine gem stones have the potential to greatly improve our quality of life, both personal and professional.
