When making Aquamarine Water, it is essential to use therapeutic-quality Aquamarine. Only Aquamarine that meets the criteria for therapeutic use will produce therapeutic Aquamarine Water and generate the benefits described in this book. Lower-quality gemstones can possess irritating or otherwise undesirable energies. If lower-quality Aquamarine is used to make Aquamarine Water, these energies can be passed into the water and subsequently into the body. Such water can even produce negative or harmful effects in the person who drinks it.
The parameters for therapeutic-quality Aquamarine described below apply to both Aquamarine necklaces that are worn around the neck and those used to make Aquamarine Water. Criteria for Therapeutic-Quality Aquamarine
The characteristics of therapeutic Aquamarine vary more than those of most other gemstones. Even the finest therapeutic Aquamarine necklaces vary in mass, clarity, hue, and depth of color.
Aquamarine occurs in a wide range of color from green to blue, and nearly all Aquamarine is a mixture of both colors. In therapeutic Aquamarine, the blue dominates. Aquamarine color also ranges in intensity from deep and rich to colorless. The depth of Aquamarine’s color determines how deeply its energy can penetrate and affect the aura and body. Therefore, the deeper its blue color, the more effective the Aquamarine will be.
Aquamarine clarity spans a continuum from flawless to opaque, with all degrees of cloudiness and flaws in between. Opaque and even moderately cloudy Aquamarine are not therapeutic. Slightly cloudy Aquamarine can be therapeutic, but only if it displays a radiant brilliance and good color. Although slightly-cloudy Aquamarine takes much longer to produce effects than clear Aquamarine, it may be preferable for people who need a more moderate pace of change. The energy of clear or nearly flawless Aquamarine moves rapidly into the aura and body, where it quickly begins to do its work.
Each therapeutic Aquamarine necklace should have a consistent degree of clarity throughout and a uniform, clearly definable color. The more uniform the color of an Aquamarine necklace, the more focused and strong its therapeutic effects will be. Avoiding Treated Aquamarine
Aquamarine's color is often altered through heat, dye, or irradiation. Although heat treatment does not inhibit Aquamarine’s energy, it also doesn’t strengthen it. Because the color of heat-treated Aquamarine looks much deeper than it really is, it can be misleading. Despite its improved appearance, the heated Aquamarine will continue to project its original, probably rather low quality of energy.
Dye renders Aquamarine therapeutically useless. Low-quality, pale Aquamarine chips are often dyed blue to deepen their color. The dye blocks the Aquamarine from radiating its healing energy into the aura and body. Also, if you use a necklace of dyed Aquamarine to make Aquamarine Water, the dye, which might be toxic, will wash off into the water.
Irradiation of Aquamarine results in the “death” of the crystal. It destroys the life energy of the gemstone and replaces it with an extremely disharmonious energy that should be avoided. If irradiated Aquamarine is worn, this disharmony will be projected into the aura and body. The destructive emanations of irradiated Aquamarine will first affect the mind. They will disrupt mental processes, distort one's view of reality, and gradually wreak havoc on the mind's harmony; eventually they will distort the emotions as well. Using Rounded Chips vs. Spheres
The most effective and economical way to use therapeutic Aquamarine is in the form of rounded chips rather than spheres. Quality and mass being equal, Aquamarine chips and spheres radiate energies of equal intensity, but chips project their energy more actively and initiate change more forcefully. The effect of Aquamarine chips is similar to that of rough ocean waves pounding a cliff: the waves gradually wear the cliff away. In comparison, Aquamarine spheres act like gentle rain: eventually the rain erodes the rock but not nearly as quickly.
Use only the rounded chip form of therapeutic-quality Aquamarine to make Aquamarine Water. The irregular impact of water cascading over the chips releases the Aquamarine energy into the water. Spherical Aquamarine will also release its energy into water, but the end product will be considerably weaker. Stringing Material
Therapeutic Aquamarine necklaces should be strung on material that is harmonious with the gemstones’ energy, such as pure silk. If you use your necklace primarily for making Aquamarine Water, ideally it should be strung on non-dyed material to prevent potentially toxic dye from being imparted to the water. Cleansing Your Aquamarine Necklace
Always use a clean necklace to make Aquamarine Water!
Under certain circumstances, therapeutic gemstone can collect and absorb disharmonious energies. For example, this happens when you wear a gemstone necklace and, in the process of healing, begin to release limiting energies. These unwanted energies build up on the surface of the gemstones. Even when you’re not using your therapeutic gemstones, they can collect random, undesirable energies from the environment. If you use an Aquamarine necklace burdened by such energies to make Aquamarine Water, these energies will be released into the water and hence into your body.
Proper cleansing of your Aquamarine necklace will clear these energies and restore the Aquamarine to its naturally vibrant state. Follow the simple steps below to keep your necklace free from unwanted energies and ready to make high-quality Aquamarine Water. Deep Cleansing
Before making Aquamarine Water for the first time, or after wearing or using your Aquamarine necklace for another therapy, thoroughly cleanse the necklace by doing the following:
If you are using your Aquamarine necklace exclusively for making Aquamarine Water, keep the necklace clean between preparing batches of water by doing the following:
Making Aquamarine Water is simple and easy!
What You’ll Need
Important: Use only a thoroughly cleansed the Aquamarine necklace to make Aquamarine Water. Click here to read “Cleansing Your Aquamarine Necklace,” for instructions.
[Performing this procedure in sunlight increases the amount of Aquamarine energy infused into the water and helps the water retain the energy somewhat longer.] How Often to Make Fresh Aquamarine Water
Make at least one new batch of Aquamarine Water daily. If you drink and cook with more than two quarts of water, make another batch - or as many as you need.
Making fresh batches every day is necessary, because the Aquamarine energy in the water dissipates over several hours. The sea salt in the formula helps to preserve the Aquamarine energy, but not for long. Using more than a pinch of salt will not affect the water’s longevity. Also, neither heat nor refrigeration will diminish or prolong the life of the Aquamarine Water. Aquamarine Water Potency
The procedure described here makes “3X” Aquamarine Water, or that which has been poured over an Aquamarine necklace three times. The more times you pour the water over the Aquamarine necklace, the stronger the Aquamarine Water you will produce. Stronger water will penetrate more deeply into the cells to find and release deeper layers of manifested crystals; it will also dissolve them more quickly.
However, for general home use, higher potency is not always better, since it can cause uncomfortable cleansing reactions. For general home use, 3X, 4X, or 5X Aquamarine Water is sufficient. If you use Aquamarine Water stronger than 5X, you should be under the supervision of a health care professional who is familiar with Aquamarine Water.
The higher the quality of the Aquamarine, the stronger the effects of the water.
