semi precious stone of the month is Aquamarine

Aquamarine is the "Stone of Courage".  It is a member of the beryl family and ranges in color from an almost colorless pale blue to a dark blue and sometimes blue-green.  It gets it name from the Latin words meaning "Water of the Sea".   This stone is attuned to the ocean and helps us to get in touch with natures spirit of the sea. Take sometime, close your eyes, breathe deep and remember sitting on the beach at dusk, the water coming in, the cool breeze…this is aquamarines gift to you.
