    The beryllium gemstone aquamarine is also excellent for muscle pain and spasms. A single rather large gem can be placed on the area of concern or a necklace of small chips can be worn because its energies will expand throughout the aura and thus will ease pain. It will also relax the emotions which can become anxious with the experience of pain. If sleeplessness is a problem because of pain, aquamarine will help to ease a person off to sleep. May all be blessed.

    I have a chunk of aquamarine. I recently found out that it is helpful for throat issues. I have hypothyroidism. I placed the aquamarine on my neck over my thyroid when I went to bed last night. I slept 8hrs and when I woke up the aquamarine was still where I had placed it on my throat. I must not have moved at all during my sleep!!!! I was born in March so it is also my birth stone.
