Beryl, which is a category of gemstone that includes emerald and aquamarine, comes in all the colors of the rainbow. In energy healing, blue is the color of the throat chakra, which is the energetic center of communication. It’s no surprise that several blue stones represent Sagittarius, since Sagittarius are outspoken communicators who may speak so frequently and vigorously, they’re often known for putting their foot in their mouth. The blue color of Sagittarius birthstones also represents the element of water, which can bring balance and harmony to this feisty fire sign.
