Aquamarine (Green or Blue):
This gentle blue stone (sometimes blue green or greenish yellow) is one of the official birthstones of March. It is a stone of truth, clear communication, and emotional balance. This will be especially helpful after the Spring Equinox when we venture into the fiery season of Aries.
The green and pink colors of Unakite are perfect for Spring. This stone is associated with fertility, which is one of the main themes of the Spring season. It is also helpful in letting go. Just like when winter gives way to spring, we revel and enjoy the rays of the sun’s warmth. When we let go of what weighs us down or no longer serves, we create space for joy and new opportunities.
This stone is associated with Earth and Virgo (Just like Persephone!). It is reminiscent of the deep forest and beautiful life. It can assist us in returning to our Mother, the earth and connecting with Her on a spiritual level.
This form of Jasper is a stone of pure joy, just like the bees must feel when they can return to their flowers. The bright yellows give off a happy energy, that leaves one feeling recharged and ready to go. Like that first deep breath of spring air. Possibility seems all around us.
Crazy Lace Agate
Crazy Lace Agate is a stone of laughter and joy. It’s fun swirls and colors can bring out the giggles. While not a traditional symbol, laughter is something that can be associated with spring. Imagine young children running barefoot through the grass after a long winter. This stone can assist with tapping into that inner child who giggles at magical fun.
Gratitude and Presence are keywords for this stone. It is such a bright orange that it can bring up memories of orange juice. This is a stone for the present moment, like standing in the gentle warmth of the sun. For the return of life after the winter, we express gratitude and joy.
