Aquamarine- March’s Something Blue

March is upon us and Spring is just around the corner, so it is time to celebrate aquamarine, March’s charming birthstone. Long associated with purity and serenity, aquamarine embodies the blue-green hue of the sea in summer, so it is no wonder this gemstone has been prized and adored for centuries. 

Aquamarine gets its name from two Latin words- ‘aqua’ and ‘marina’ which means ‘water of the sea’. Used as a talisman to protect sailors in ancient times from treacherous maritime journeys, aquamarine was thought to be the treasure of mermaids. It is a captivating stone, appearing to encapsulate the power and beauty of the ocean and the many mysteries within it. In the modern day, aquamarine is looked upon to bring harmony and happiness to a marriage.
