The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus which means “water of the sea” and refers to its glittering ocean-like color. The light blue, transparent crystal belongs to the family Beryl. Its color, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides in the chemical composition of the stone. The ancient seer considered it standing under the influence of the moon, a sphere that exerts a very large magnetic influence. Today’s fans of crystal vision suggest that when Aquamarine is used to see upcoming events, this happens as the moon increases. The magnetism of the moon on the trapped iron oxides will enhance the predictive ability of the stone.
