    March's Bloom Aquamarine

    As we March towards Spring, the Aquamarine is a lovely gemstone of tranquil blues. Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family and a close cousin to the Emerald.  Aquamarine originally derived from the Latin words “aqua marina,” which means seawater, which is fitting since the most common color is a natural blue.

    Aquamarine symbolizes faithfulness, courage, and friendship. In early times it is said to give the wearer a sense of foresight and happiness. It would increase intelligence and could make one feel youthful. In gemstone healing, it was used in the Middle Ages to reduce the effect of poisons and is said to help with the treatment of anxiety.

    Legends say sailors used to wear these gems around their necks to protect them while at sea. It is the birthstone of March and relates to the Zodiac sign Pieces. It is the tradition of giving Aquamarine to celebrate the 19th year of marriage.

    I am always drawn to Aquamarine in my designs because it’s a soft blue and calming color. It is often a favorite of my customers as well.
