Here we present an incredibly gorgeous, delicate pair of chandelier earrings. Just 1 1/2 inches in length beneath sterling earwires, the earrings begin with solid sterling findings in a beautiful cutout pattern. Beneath these hang blue topaz ovals and faceted aquamarine teardrops. As with all of our earrings, these come in ziplock bags to keep tarnish away and have clear soft rubber earnuts to keep them securely in place.
What a breathtaking stone is aquamarine! This semiprecious gemstone ranges from the totally clear pale blue which is used in rings, to the opaque variety we find in beads and tumbled stones. Aquamarine literally means "blue water." Blues are associated with the throat chakra, the center which allows us to more clearly manifest our thoughts into coherent language. We find tints of green as well as blue in this lovely member of the beryl family, bringing into the mix warmth from the greens of the Heart Chakra.
It is a calming stone as well, bringing water-stillness to overwhelmed minds and hearts. When there is conflict, aquamarine will soothe; when there is worry, aquamarine brings peace of mind and Spirit. Aquamarine is also associated with the gifts of water goddesses, such as Isis, Aphrodite, and Bridghe, bringing the purifying and protective blessings such goddesses impart, and though the stone is a Piscean birthstone, its gifts are available to us all. Singing, writing poetry, being inspired in how one communicates, and refined psychic senses... all are gifts of aquamarine!
Derived from tapaz, the Sanskrit word for "fire," topaz is one of the most brilliant cut gemstones in existence. Topaz comes in a variety of colors from yellow to blue, and deeper blues and pinks are often created by heat-treating stones. A stone ruled by the Sun, topaz is said to lend anyone, regardless of birth month, the ability to follow through on projects one is having a difficult time jump-starting or sticking with. This is an Aries weakness, and where Aries is in your chart, there you will find difficulty sustaining and completing matters, although in that area of life you will be a brave innovator, some say even going where angels fear to tread.
In addition, topaz is said to strengthen intellect and help in moderating how a person displays anger. This is one of Scorpio's most powerful challenge in this incarnation: controlling how one uses her or his energy. Other qualities and benefits assigned to topaz include facilitation of clear and incisive communication, whether vocalized or written, and assistance with reining in out-of-control passions or emotions (another major Scorpio challenge). Finally, as delightful esoteric treat, magickal lore notes topaz as a wonderful stone for psychic protection, and one which aids invisibility spells!
