Aquamarine, to me, is nature’s solution to the face-melting heat that pours from a Texas summer’s oven door. She's the wiser, older sister of the aggressively overzealous A/C unit that is at once a savior and a curse, as so many modern inventions are. At peace with her inability to physically provide coolness, she finds her younger sibling’s relentless blast of 65 degree ice-air to be tiring and obvious.
As someone whose summertime indoor activities are always accompanied by an unseasonable jacket, I can appreciate Aquamarine’s subtlety. Its pale blue clarity splashed with seafoamy yellow-green has long been associated with the properties of water. Just looking through the stone is like a mental thirst quenching, internal relief from the heat’s agitative oppression – and the reason I chose Aquamarine as a focus of my upcoming collection.
A stone’s power can be both personal and universal. The above reflections describe how Aquamarine resonates with me personally. As I delve into more research on the properties of stones, I’m often surprised by how the data and historic lore mirror my own instinctive reactions.
