Aquamarine and Fire Opal Angel Pendant Size: 5.5cm x 4cm Weight: 8.5gms Aquamarine is a beautiful blue Beryl. The name Beryl is derived from Greek βήρυλλος Beryllos which referred to a "precious blue-green color-of-sea-water stone" The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that aquamarine would protect against any dangers while traveling at sea ( they would carry small stones of Aquamarine to throw overboard in a storm as a sacrifice to Poseidon and Neptune to placate the storm) and that it provided energy and cured laziness. Aquamarine is a “Stone of Courage and Protection”. Used often with the Throat Chakra, Aquamarine can be used to promote verbal self-expression. It is often used to enhance spiritual communication and clear communication blocks. Aquamarine is also used to align all of the chakras and enhance the aura. Fire Opal is a form of white precious opal which is a hydrated silica mineral composed of microscopic spheres whose regular formation diffracts light to produce the "Fire" within the stone. The frequency of Fire Opals connects to all the Chakras. The internal "fire" in Fire Opals brings "light" energy into all of one's chakric system and energy fields cleansing and purifying them of negativity and replacing these low vibration energies with the high vibrational energy of joy.
