the mystery of the | B L U E S T O N E
Old legends tell how aquamarine was hoarded on the ocean bed in the mermaids' treasure chest: these maidens were the daughters of the mighty Poseidon. Not even they had ever seen anything finer: a stone that reflected the lights of the waters in all its shadings from the clearest blue through to turquoise. Thus it held captive all the life-giving powers of the ocean.
Long treasured since the earliest times, aquamarine was used for healing, for jewelry, as amulets.
The secret powers of aquamarine.
The ancient Greeks treasured aquamarine as a symbol of purity, love as well as matrimonial fidelity and bliss! It was believed to give strength at times of crisis.
We know that from earliest times aquamarine was also used to cut magic mirrors. Soothsayers used these to foresee the future. Thus aquamarine is believed to possess propensities that protect from lurking danger.
For some, aquamarine is a joyful stone that lends harmony to its owner.
One aquamarine towers above them all in its radiance, its magic:
the Aquamarine Poseidon!
