Psychologically, Aquamarine has an affinity with sensitive people.  It has the power to invoke tolerance of others.  It overcomes judgmentalism, gives support to anyone who is overwhelmed by responsibility, and encourages taking responsibility for oneself.  It creates a personality that is upright, persistent, and dynamic.  It can break old, self-defeating programs.

Aquamarine calms the mind, removing extraneous thought. With its ability to bring unfinished business to a conclusion, Aquamarine is useful for closure on all levels.  This stone is helpful in understanding underlying emotional states and interpreting how you feel.  It soothes fears and increases sensitivity.
