Aquamarine results from mixing the calmness of blue with the balance and growth of green, while throwing in a slight touch of the uplifting energy of yellow. It invites to submit oneself to the changes that are out of one’s control – like a ship surrendering to the wind and the waves, sailing in a vast unknown – in order to move forward.
