dazzling & alive this hand mined Aquamarine encourages courage & clarification.
The gem is hand faceted & is set in hammered 22kt gold vermeil.
In a land of dust a famine, there rises a cooling blue light, the Aquamarine.
Deep in the plains of Somaliland, these cooling blue stones are mined by a community called the Dhabi-Hagoog. This nomadic family has been tending this sacred land for generations. Found among ancient cave paintings, the Aquamarines are hand selected among the hills of Dhabi-Hagoog, a place long held sacred by the local people.
Naturally small and rounded, these stones were deposited by an ancient river, giving each stone the wisdom of both earth and water. Mined by hand, without tools of any kind, each stone is picked with respect for mother nature in an environmentally friendly way.
The people of Dhabi-Hagoog are nomadic camel herders and miners living off the land for thousands of years. Like the cooling oasis of the desert, Aquamarine is a stone of courage & has calming energies which reduce stress and quiet the mind. It can invoke tolerance of others and overcomes judgmentalism, giving support to those overwhelmed by responsibility, and well as clarifying perception, sharpens the intellect and clears confusion.
