"Aquamarine facilitates calming and cooling, from anger to hot flashes, and they also activate the throat chakra, assisting in the clear communication of one's highest truth. They are stones of the Water element, bringing one in touch with their subconscious, the domains of Spirit and our deepest emotions. Their energy is as refreshing as a shower under a cool waterfall. It brings one to a relaxed, alert stage of consciousness in which one is fully aware of one's own store of knowledge, wisdom and feelings, and able to articulate them all with clarity and conviction. For women, Aquamarine lends the courage and clarity to express one's inner knowing, and it enhances intuitive abilities. It is a doorway to communication with the Goddess, both within the self and in Her outer manifestations. For men, Aquamarine helps dispel emotional numbness and the difficulty men sometimes experience in communicating their feelings. It also calms frustration and helps on keep one's temper, even when provoked. Aquamarine connects to the Divine Feminine, the Source of life energies, and those who wish to know Her better can use this stone as a gateway." Robert Simmons the Book of Stones
