The meaning of this crystal's name derives from the Latin, meaning 'water of the sea'. Aquamarine is said to bring courage, and sooth conflicts. It can help you to let go of old emotional issues you may be holding on to. By assisting you to release anger and reduce stress...it may help you to make positive changes in your life. Aquamarine is a symbol of happiness and everlasting youth.
Amethyst is a crystalline quartz in shades of purple. Of the many stones I work with, it is one that is found right here in Ontario. It has a calming energy that quiets the mind and promotes restfull sleep, simple thing that improves all aspects of our health. Traditionally it was worn to guard against drunkenness and help overcome addictions.

Abalone is the name for any of a group of small to very large edible sea snails or molluscs, so I suppose the first stone of the week is actually a shell. The next 11 are semi-precious stones I assure you. That said, abalone is beautiful with colours ranging from green to blue and purple. It is said to calm emotions, promote honesty and cooperation.
