In the home
The crystal’s connection with water reminds us of the peaceful fluidity of the ocean. Aquamarine allows us to bring a piece of the open sea into our homes. Place the stone so its easily visible in the places where you often spend time in reflection. Try your bedroom or kitchen windowsill – it also looks great submerged in a water-filled glass bowl.
