8” – Aquamarine, White Moonstone, Rainbow Moonstone, Citrine – Astghik (“little star”) is the goddess of love, beauty and water and the beloved of god Vahagn. She is also the personification of sunlight. As the wife of Vahagn, she also forms a triad with both Aramazd and Anahit. The name Astghik is connected with the planet Venus, the symbol of the goddess. She is also identified with Aphrodite. Astghik is a perfect counter for Vaghan. While he represents brute strength and endurance, thunder and fire, she brings feminine strength, soft but strong, and the flow and ebb of water. He is the here and now, removing what no longer serves to create space for the new. She is the future and what we are striving to build with the new Earth, peace and love. Together they balance each other perfectly.
The stones in this bracelet represent Astghik beautifully: Aquamarine contains the healing, vibrant power of our ancient seas, washing away stress and fear and making room for peace and tranquility, a great talisman for travel. Moonstone brings the ancient power of the moon, mysterious and feminine, very nurturing, promotes well-being and enhances the intuition. White moonstone assists with intuition and insight, helping us get in touch with our emotions. Rainbow Moonstone belongs to the family of feldspar (think transparent Labradorite) and is not truly moonstone but has become accepted as such. It opens the crown chakra and is excellent for meditation and peaceful focus. Citrine, like Astghik, is the personification of sunlight, making this stone the perfect addition to this bracelet. It promotes a sense of happiness and light, while grounding you into your own power and inspiring confidence.
