Aquamarine & Mica 03
I speak with kindness as I express my truth. I have the courage to say 'yes' and 'no'.
Aquamarine is a stone that rules our emotional flow and resonates with the throat chakra. Be courageous, calm and collected.
NOTE: This Aquamarine is unheated.
Colourless in its purest state, Beryl owes its varying colours to impurities and trace impurities or defects within the crystal structure rather than an element of its basic chemical composition. In the case of Aquamarine, ferrous iron Fe" gives it that fresh blue colour and colours pale-blue, mid-blue to greenish-blue.
Aquamarine is a fairly resilient stone, however always be gentle and kind to your crystals.

Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
