Green Aquamarine Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Green Aquamarine

Know where your crystals come from

This Aquamarine comes from artisanal miners in Angola.  It may be a byproduct of a granite mine.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Green Aquamarine Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2014  •  Updated August 2022  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Aquamarine is the blue variety of Beryl, and very closely related to Emerald.  Aquamarine is found scattered in mines around the world, but never in large enough quantities to justify its own mine.  Instead it is a secondary mineral minded alongside others minerals such as Black Tourmaline.  In the fine gemstone industry, transparent Aquamarine is sometimes heat-treated to bring out a more vibrant color, but most of the specimens sold to collectors are completely natural. Aquamarine healing powers have been written about since antiquity and it has long been associated with mermaids and sailors. […]
