Hi there dear Empaness supporters and gemstone jewellery fanatics
Of all gemstones, Aquamarine is my favourite ! - beautiful deep blue and sparkling
It is a stone of the sea - its name comes from Latin: aqua marina, “sea water”, Wikipedia

It is a form of the mineral Beryl.
In Roman times, it was used as a talisman against drowning by sailors and others.
I find it a very calming stone, helping me get through stressful times.
Here are some thoughts on it from Judy Hall’s Crystal Bible:
“Aquamarine has the power to invoke tolerance of others. It overcomes judgementalism, gives support to anyone who is overwhelmed by responsibility, and encourages taking responsibility for oneself…..It calms the mind, clears blocked communication and promotes self expression.
It soothes fears and increases sensitivity. It as a wonderful stone for meditation.
Aquamarine is useful for sore throats, swollen glands and thyroid problems. This stone has a general tonic effect”
Aquamarine is linked to the throat chakra. Accordingly, it can provide support against anxiety related to speaking in public, so have some aquamarine close to you if you have to do a presentation ! It is said to be a great help in relaxing and delivering a speech with conviction, truth and confidence.
I think it has a gentle and compassionate feeling, which resonates with healing, both mentally and physically.

This week’s news from Julie’s craft bench:
This week I have still been working on my recycled collection, which is coming along nicely. Hopefully I’ll be posting some pictures and adding some pieces to the website this week.
I’m also looking into packaging changes - when I use up the packaging I have now I want to find more sustainable and environmental packaging for my jewellery pieces that still looks beautiful, but is kinder and friendlier to our planet.
